Local resident Ronnie Mickles is seeking an injunction to stop the city of Beaumont from demolishing a property he obtained at the Jefferson County Sheriff's sale in April.

The petition was filed June 7 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the petition, on April 3 Mickles purchased property at 1140 Roberts Street in Beaumont at the sheriff's sale with the intention of renovating and remodeling the house.

However, when he sought a building permit, Mickles learned the city had condemned the house and planned to demolish the structure.

Mickles claims he will suffer irreparable harm unless the city is enjoined.

Beaumont attorney Mel Shelander represents him.

Judge Gary Sanderson, 6oth District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. B192-539
