CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – Once again this week, another house considered by local law enforcement to illicit criminal activity such as prostitution and drugs has been demolished.

With the help of the National Guard, the City of Corpus Christi took down a house on the 800 block of Cheyenne Street.  Just Monday, the nationally funded project tore down another house on the west side of town.  Police said they found lots of drug paraphernalia left inside the buildings.

The program is funded through a federal grant that saves the City about $30,000 to demolish each house.  The National Guard provides the equipment and the workforce and the City types up the paperwork.

Students from Rose Shaw Elementary school were on site to support the efforts to "crackdown" on drug and gang activity.  The house that was taken down today was just a few feet away from the school.
