Garbage, drug dealing at Duron Paints?

Looks like the Duron Paints store at 14th and Clifton isn't just an odd outlier in the neighborhood, there may be more going on. One resident posted on the neighborhood listserve about a bunch of garbage dumped there, like a mattress, trash bags, rats, and more, and another thinks drugs are being dealt there, indicated by a lot of cars pulling up, stopping for a minute to talk to somebody, and driving away.

It looks like ANC commish and South Columbia Heights Neighborhood Association president Sedrick Muhammad forwarded the complaint on to the city.

I would recommend that if people think drugs are being dealt there, they call 911 to report it. The more reports the area gets, the more attention it will get.

Anybody else notice anything fishy at the store?

This has been going on for some time. I have complained to the city about it, through the police and Councilmember Graham, for a few years. It gets a little better for a short period of time, but then it goes right back to the way it was. Duron takes no responsibility for their property, and makes a terrible neighbor.
