When you believe that there illegal drug activity in New York State, you can contact the District Attorney. If the District Attorney makes an arrest based upon drug use or drug sale, you can commence a Drug Holdover in Housing Court. A drug Holdover takes an expedited route and you can get a Trial much quicker, the warrant of eviction will issue much quicker and as a result you will evict the tenant much quicker.
