One Cincinnati landlord is so exasperated by street crime outside his building that he's posted a large sign announcing "Drugs & Sex For Sale 24/7."

John Wallen says most tenants have fled his apartment building because of drug-dealing and prostitution on the street.

The large sign that he put up on Friday urges passers-by to call the City Council to help get the area cleaned up.

Councilwoman Roxanne Qualls says Wallen has every right to be angry. She says police should be more aggressive about cracking down on the drugs sellers and prostitutes on Wallen's block and she promises to take the matter up with the police chief.

Wallen says police come quickly every time he calls but criminals always come back once the police drive off.
