Former dealer helps clean up meth house

April 30, 2012

BOISE, ID — After one of her tenants was busted for cooking methamphetamine (meth) in her apartment, Debbie Johnson has been working against the odds to make her building habitable again, according to KTVB-TV.

Johnson had a professional duct cleaner in to clean out the vents in the house that could be spreading meth residue, the article stated.

According to the article, Johnson solicited help from her church because the task was becoming more than one person could tackle on their own, and the church’s leader had an unexpected connection to the neighborhood.

"This was one of my main spots. I was a drug dealer on the Northside here," Pastor Jordan Hodges said.

"When I was 18 years old, actually, I had a grand jury indictment for selling meth here in Nampa that I was prosecuted for and went to prison for," Hodges added.

Idaho''s law states that homeowners can do the clean-up themselves, and when all is said and done, Johnson will have spent nearly $5,000 to get her building meth-free, the article noted.
