WAYNESBORO - Inside 260 N. Commerce Ave., sticky and crumbling apartment walls are divided only by dark doors with coarse, glassless peepholes. Outside, a toy-strewn yard hosts drunken, drug-induced fights.

Yet despite almost daily police visits and frequent arrests, many tenants see recent policy changes bringing peace and quiet.

Others are just getting away from the place that’s OK for living, “if you’re strong enough,” a six-year tenant said.

Those on the move are avoiding a new landlord who introduced an aggressive eviction mentality and code of conduct early this year, just after a spurt of violence.

Due in court today are three men: David Sanchez, 20; Isaias Rojas, 22; and Jose Sanchez-Aregin, 20, charged with robbing a fourth man of beer and beating him with a baseball bat Dec. 19.
