I'm currently living in temporary accommodation with my 9 month old DS, yesterday they changed a guy who was living here's locks ad he'd not paid the rent.. So he kicked the door down in order to get his belongings.
So from outside I noticed he left the window open so figure I should go in and shut it and I came a cross a prison discharge sheet he'd left on the floor, this kind of got me worried as I'm living with two men atm (well one now) on my own so i massively (wrongly) invaded his privacy and had a look around what he'd left. So what hes left is blatent evidence that he is selling drugs. A lot of new baggies, sheets of paper with names and who owes him what etc. There's also a knife by the backdoor, a knife behind the tv in the communal living room and just knives randomly placed all over this house basically.
The things im worried about are
1) why the knives? If hes a drug dealer (which he obviously is) then who wad he worried about coming here so much he needed knives everywhere?
2) they only changed the lock to his room, not the front door lock so he still has access to the property, although not my room. (but i do need to use the other areas) he has nowhere to go, and is staying st a friend or atleast that's what he said, so there's every chance he might just come back.

So, do i phone the police and inform them what I've found? Or the lady who owns this property (she gave a 24hr number) or even social services because they atleast would be someone who will listen when i say im worried about my son being here and would make sure that he is safe?
I'm worried about calling the police because i dont know anyone from the area and im not sure pissing off drug dealers is a safe thing to do.
Or am i over reacting? He was obviously a drug dealer but he doesn't technically live here anymore and hasn't been here since yesterday afternoon. He doesn't seem like a violent person but then again i didn't think he was a drug dealer either.

My immediate thought is that you must remove yourself and your DS from that environment; imo it's not safe! Phone your local council, phone the police too, and the landlady.
The council must be able to provide you with somewhere else to stay!

Phone police or emergency social services. I'm sure they won't want to take the chance of leaving you there with a baby even if that means putting you in a b&b.
