Filthy house gets Thessaloniki hoarder detained

Police in Thessaloniki on Thursday detained a 66-year-old man, deeming that his home in the district of Toumba was so dirty that it posed a public health risk.

Following a series of complaints about an intense odor emanating from the two-story house, police visited the building and found it to be cluttered with trash.

Police officers were accompanied by a detail of Thessaloniki’s municipal sanitation unit
