Neighbourhood warned of arrival of "criminal"
A letter claiming to be from a real estate broker's office warns residents.8 February 2008
EELDERWOLDE – Residents of a street in the village of Eelderwolde in Drenthe recently received a letter announcing that they would soon have a criminal as a neighbour. The letter was written on note paper with a letterhead from realtor Meeùs.
The real estate office has filed a complaint of defamation in connection with the case, the police reported on Friday.
The letter's author, who claims to be a Meeùs employee himself, says he is a "whistle blower." He reports in the letter that employees of the real estate broker have rented the home out to a drug user who also owns child pornography.
"We are investigating the case. There are no results to be reported as yet," said a spokesperson for police.
