Arrest Warrant Out For Concord Landlord Over Bedbugs

CONCORD, Calif. (AP) – The city of Concord is seeking an arrest warrant for a landlord who allegedly has refused to exterminate bedbugs from his Northern California apartment building.

The Contra Costa Times reports Tuesday  the city has filed a request for an arrest warrant against Athan Magganas, who since April has ignored multiple violation notices and fines.

The city says Magganas has failed to exterminate bedbugs in two apartments in his 20-unit building in Concord.

Concord officials want Magganas arrested on one count of misdemeanor violation of the municipal code. A judge has yet to rule on their arrest warrant request

Bedbugs feed on human blood and usually bite at night. They live in upholstered furniture, mattresses and bedding as well as along baseboards and in cracks and crevices.
