Illegal activity suspected, is this an opening? - Posted by Jim IL

This (scroll down, the article is pasted below) was in the local newspaper today. The offender is the son on my tenants. The house in the 500 block of Randall they are talking about is MINE!
I wonder if it is time to go “inspect” the place and insure that NO ILLEGAL activity is taking place there. (The illegal activity clause is in my lease, as well as an inspection clause. AND as an ex-cop, I will be able to tell IF there is something fishy goin on.)
These are my chronic late payors. They pay late EVERY month.
And “sometimes” I get a late fee. But, I’m usually soft on them, because they always have a sob story, and do not seem too bright.
Maybe this will allow me to get them out, and re-sell the place? (there in it on a L/O.)
Who knows, but it caught me eye.
I just hope they don’t spend there rent money to bond the loser kid out of jail, or hire a lawyer instead of paying me. hmmmmm? Õ¿Õ
And NO, I also do not want to “kick them when there down”, so this would ONLY take place obviously IF I found anything illegal taking place on MY property.
What do you think?,
HERES THE ARTICLE;
"An Aurora man was charged with several offenses after a car he was riding in was stopped at 10:18 p.m. Thursday in the 300 block of East Wilson Street, Batavia. Police said they found a loaded .357 Magnum revolver and seven small packages of cocaine in the coat pockets of Joe Blow(Name changed to protect the “innocent until proven guilty”), 17, of the 500 block of Randall Road. Joe Blow was charged with armed violence because he had a weapon and drugs on his person, unlawful possession of a controlled substance, unlawful use of weapon and unlawful possession of a weapon and ammunition.
