Wrecking Cincinnati, 10/15/08

1677 State Avenue, South Fairmount
DOB: 1876
Died: September 2008
Cause of death: Vandalism caused by vagrants and deterioration caused by weather. The property was subject to City barricade on numerous occasions, and was the dumping ground for litter and other debris.

The house was condemned in July 2006. There was no contact between the City and owner Semme Holdings of Clearwater, Florida, including pre-prosecution hearings. A criminal case was filed in March 2007, and the City declared the house a public nuisance in April 2007.

In July of 2008, the owner did not show up for an arraignment hearing and a $5,000 bond was ordered. Semme Holdings is currently involved in 9 lawsuits in Hamilton County Courts involving warrants for their arrest. The house was vacant and condemned when they purchased it.

Semme Holdings has the same address as Shorefront Ventures, at 515 Florida Avenue in Clearwater, 33756. Take a look at some of the shenanigans these people are pulling off, and ask yourself why these people aren't in prison:
