    Mohammad Ismail bought the dilapidated house at a city auction of tax delinquent properties late last year for $14,000 with the hopes of renovating it and turning it into a home for his wife and four children who were in Brooklyn. What he didn't know when he bought the house was that the previous owner was a Buffalo police officer. One day the former owner showed up with another police officer, and Ismail said they threatened to arrest him if he didn't leave. - Maki Becker, Lou Michel of The Buffalo News
