Guess who was a code violator?

The New York Post is reporting that the compound built in Pakistan that housed Osama Bin Laden deviated from the building plans on file.  It was supposed to be a 2 story building but ended up with 3.  An extra building not on the plans also was constructed.  The Post says Bin Laden never paid property taxes.  It also reported that:

The oversights were no surprise to locals, who say Abbottabad’s building inspectors never bother to check whether homes are built in line with their building permits.

I keep saying that strict code enforcement can aid law enforcement.  You just never know what you’ll find when you pursue these cases.
