The Las Cruces Sun-News reports a lawsuit recently filed in state district court by three former tenants said Desert Palms Apartments in Las Cruces, New Mexico, did nothing to stem the tide of bed bugs, rodents, and roaches.

Former tenant Erica Olivas says rats were living in her stove. Olivas says she and her 13-year-old son injected rat feces from food cook in the stove.

Jeff Curry, who manages the property with JL Gray Company, says he feels terrible for former tenants and the complex is working with tenants who are experiencing issues.
