Dozens of residents allowed back into apartments after being locked out

About 50 people locked out of units at Olmos Club Apartments

SAN ANTONIOUpdated April 28:

A worker at the Olmos Club Apartments said the locks were removed from the doorknobs and the issue has been resolved.

Bexar County Precinct 2 Commissioner Justin Rodriguez said about 50 residents who were locked out of their apartments were allowed back to their units.

Rodriguez said he’s pleased apartment management decided to reverse course.

“We haven’t had a whole lot of issues, but if anything, I hope this sends a message to people that you just can’t do this. You have to respect the fact there is a moratorium on evictions, number one. And then, secondly, it’s in the general public health interest that we keep people at home if at all possible.”

KSAT 12 News reached out to apartment management but we have yet to hear from them.
