ODESSA- Residents at the Carriage House apartments are in shock. On Sunday night, a brick wall on one of their buildings collapsed. 

No one was hurt and the city inspector came out to look at it on Monday morning. He told NewsWest 9, he could not comment because it's an ongoing investigation. 

According to the apartment manager, the city inspector said the brick wall was purely cosmetic and the building is still sound. 

Residents say that is just the latest of a long list of problems they put up with including cockroaches and bed bugs. However, they do not blame the manager. 

"She is trying to make this the safest part of the community," Benny West said. "I know in some cases she has even given money out of her own pocket."

According to Hector County tax records, the Carriage House apartments are owned by KSH Trust, care of Samuel Pinter, who is based out of New York.

NewsWest 9 called both numbers listed for KSH. One was a non-working number, the other person who answered claimed that the number was a typing error. Samuel Pinter's residence was unlisted by his own request.

According to the Better Business Bureau, there has only been one complaint against Carriage House.
