Update 3/25/2013:  This home is now in the receivership process. Baltimore Housing filed on 3/13, and the court date is in May.  Hopefully this property will be sold to a responsible property owner who will take care of it.  Many thanks to Reader Rusty for catching this one!

Property Address:  2037 Orleans Street, Baltimore, MD 21231

Property Owner: Melvin T. Russell, 3405 Periwinkle Way, Edgewood, MD 21040

City Council District and Contact:  District 13, Warren Branch

This home is owned by Melvin Russell, commanding officer of the Baltimore City Police, Eastern District Station.  Perhaps that explains why Major Russell has never been hauled into housing court for the numerous violations involving this property.  Please note the trash, and open/missing windows.
