Students Evicted After Finding Peepholes In Apartment

BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- A 20-year-old student and her three roommates say they found at least two holes drilled in bedroom walls in their apartment on Queensbury Street. Now, Boston Police are looking to see if they are victims of a peeping Tom.

But Bridgit Moran told WBZ-TV that after she filed a police report and notified property owner Alpha Management, they didn't have much of a reaction--and she said that, when her mother filed a formal complaint withholding rent pending an investigation, they were slapped with an eviction notice.

Moran said she feels violated.

"I was able to see that there was a light on the other side," Moran told WBZ-TV. "That's places where my friends and I are talking, I'm sleeping, I'm changing. That's just not right, that someone can be able to look in."

Alpha Management was the focus of a 2014 Boston Globe Spotlight investigation about scofflaw landlords, which found the company to be one of the most complained-about in Boston. WBZ-TV said they reached out to them, but did not get a response.

Moran and her roommates have found a new apartment, and said they plan to move out in the next few weeks.
