LAS CRUCES, New Mexico - The scene at Desert Hope Apartments is a very different one today than it was just 10 months ago.
Drugs, crime, and violence are prevalent, as reported by residents of both the apartments and neighbors of the complex. It's a grim picture compared to the positive outlook that new residents had at the grand opening last year.
ABC-7 took a tour of the complex with Las Cruces Mayor Ken Miyagishima to get a perspective from residents of the current living conditions.
Stay tuned to ABC-7 at 5 and 6 for a more detailed look into this situation.
