      Lawyer defends apartment owner accused of spiders

      A city inspector found zero live spiders and no infestation on September 11.

      Representatives of Garry Lewis Properties sent KRCG 13 a written response to our story on an alleged spider infestation at Columbia??s Timber Ridge Apartments through their attorney Christopher Braddock.

      Braddock said, ??The tenants in question moved in on August 1. No complaint was made until on or about September 5. The building was sprayed on September 6. A city inspector found zero live spiders and no infestation on September 11. My client offered the complaining tenants the opportunity to sublease or move to a different complex. The tenants declined to do so.??
