MECHANIC'S LIEN FILED AGAINST NEW OWNERS OF CRAIN SANITARIUM

(Richmond, IN)--A mechanic’s lien has been filed against the new owners of the Crain Sanitarium.  That’s the home at the corner of 22nd and East Main directly across from the Madonna of the Trail in Richmond.  Its owner, Heaven Johnson, allegedly stole multiple items from Menard’s and was arrested.  Plumbing contractor Dale Brooks filed the lien, claiming he has not been paid for about $1200 worth of work.  The Johnsons also stayed at Richmond bed and breakfast and have now left without paying a portion of the bill.  Meanwhile, the house sits empty.  Contractors say there has been no activity in the last two weeks.  Kicks 96 and The Point News has discovered the Johnsons had previously used a different last name.  We’ll have that story Wednesday.
