CITY WORKERS in hazmat suits fumigated a house in East Germantown yesterday, the same day the Daily News wrote about neighbors' complaints of mice and roaches from that house swarming 12 other homes on the block. Rebecca Swanson, spokeswoman for the Department of Licenses and Inspections, said the city took immediate action yesterday after a caretaker of the homeowner admitted the woman was still living there and that he was unable to fumigate it. Neighbors said they thought the woman had moved out, leaving the home with piles of garbage inside.

A woman was found dead inside a house that caught fire early Friday in the city's East Germantown section, the Fire Department reported. At 1:03 a.m., firefighters were called to the 5600 block of Bloyd Street, where they found a two-story house with smoke coming from the first floor, Deputy Commissioner Jesse A. Wilson said. Firefighters tried to search for anyone trapped inside, but "it was impossible to make entry because there was so much debris," possibly because of a hoarding situation, Wilson said.

SUPPORTERS OF TYREE Carroll gathered in East Germantown last night to send a message about policing methods, demanding identification of the dozen or more officers involved in the 22-year-old's controversial April arrest. Chief Inspector Myron Patterson and Capt. Sekou Kinebrew from the Philadelphia Police Department's 14th District heard concerns from residents at district headquarters on Haines Street near Germantown Avenue. About 40 residents attended the district's monthly community meeting, mostly to ask for release of the names of the officers involved in Carroll's arrest on a drug-possession charge.

MORE THAN a week after video of Tyree Carroll's controversial April arrest surfaced on YouTube, family, lawyers and neighbors rallied yesterday outside the Police Administration Building to call for his release from prison. Carroll, 22, was arrested near his grandmother's East Germantown home surrounded by at least a dozen officers, some of whom are seen in the video kicking and punching Carroll as he lay on the ground. At the rally, grandmother Nancy Carroll spoke from her wheelchair, as Tyree's niece shielded the woman's face from the hot sun with a "#JusticeForTyree" poster.

The District Attorney's Office notified a judge Tuesday that it will take another try at convicting on perjury counts a former Philadelphia police officer who last month was acquitted of the same charges in another case. The present case against Steven Lupo, 38, involves a car stop and the arrest of Joseph Tyamba and Angel Huffman on Sept. 25, 2010, in Germantown. The future of that case became unclear June 30, when a jury took about 45 minutes to acquit Lupo of charges he lied under oath about a warrantless search of a drug suspect's car in 2011.

THE PHONE CALL that Vito Maglio Sr.'s family had been dreading finally came on Friday. Philadelphia police had found a man's bullet-riddled body in the murky waters of the Schuylkill in East Falls. An investigator wanted a copy of Maglio's dental records. It had been a little more than three months since the 69-year-old Bustleton man had vanished without a trace. Well, almost. On Dec. 18, four days after Maglio was last seen by his relatives, the charred remains of his GMC Yukon were found in East Germantown, an area he was never known to frequent.

Jeff Davis took a gutsy step three years ago buying a rundown commercial property for $105,000 in East Germantown. The 41-year-old father of two did so based on one simple truth: You can't fashion a serving bowl from a digital track of the Beatles - or any other recording artists for that matter. But you can from vinyl. His company, Vinylux, uses predominantly 33s and 45s for its designs, although products involving 78s are coming.
