A Bristol landlord turned himself into police Monday morning on a reckless endangerment charge related to an investigation into building code violations at an apartment building he owns that resulted in evictions earlier this month.
The criminal investigation into Antonino "Anthony" Cammariere began after police received reports that Cammariere took down condemned building warning notices posted at his 116-122 High Street apartment building in Bristol, police said.
He was also cited on charges of 10 counts of Bristol property maintenance code violations.
Earlier in the month the 12-unit apartment building on High Street was condemned and all residents were asked to move out.
An official with the Bristol/Burlington Health District inspected the apartment building and discovered several building violations, police said. Cammarierie didn't repair the problems to bring the building up to code, according to police.
He turned himself into police on warrants Monday at 8 a.m. and police charged him with second-degree reckless endangerment. The health district also worked with police to obtain warrants pertaining to the building code violations.
Police released Cammariere after he posted a $1,000 non-surety bond for each warrant and he is scheduled to appear in New Britain Superior Court on Thursday, May 14.
