It was back in 2009 when "Hawthorne Hawkman" wrote a guest post on this blog about the revocation of rental licenses for Gregge Johnson, click here for that story. Revocation of rental licenses didn't change the fact Johnson still had extensive property holdings in North Minneapolis, as documented (once again by Hawthorne Hawkman) on a "photo tour."
Now word reaches me from a reader that Johnson has defaulted on his mortgage of...
....$267,000. Click here for the legal notice. The notice pertains to more than one default in Sherburne County by Johnson and other unrelated parties, but Johnson's mortgage default is the one listed at the top.
The property in question is located at 11880 Highland Road NW in Elk River.
Though there's no smoking gun evidence in front of me that this mortgage default is directly connected to the collapse of Johnson's rental property empire, it seems pretty hard to avoid connecting the dots in a circumstantial kind of way.
