Import Savages...?

Homeowner cited for filthy living conditions
17 people living in home

SPRINGDALE — The front of the house at 1524 Pioneer St. looked fairly normal — but when Springdale Police Sgt. Billy Turnbough went inside he wasn’t prepared for what he stepped into.

There was about an inch of standing water in the living room from backed up sewage in the bathroom. The room was bare, except for a bunk bed unit piled high with clothes in the corner.

The kitchen sink was stopped up with water. The family of 17 living in the house used a 50-gallon trash can to dump out sink water so they could wash dishes, said Turnbough, a member of the Springdale Nuisance Abatement Partnership program. When the trash can filled with water, the family dumped it in the backyard.

In the bathroom a tub was filled with 8 to 10 inches of stagnant water and two toilets had overflowed.

Two families, seven adults and 10 children, ages 1 to 12, were living in the 1,016 square foot home, owned by Sergo Favela-Suarez, that had a maximum occupancy for five.

“There were four kids to one bed,” Turnbough said.
