My family owns a building that has community living and apartments.  We have recently had a lot of issues with the tenants living in the community living.  We just had a tenant put red food dye in another tenants shower head and we had also heard from an outside source that this tenant also had plans to fill the same person's ice cube trays with Visine and taint his toilet paper with poison ivy.  My family has been fighting about what should happen to the tenant who perpetrated these acts.  What would you do if you had a tenant do these things?

Seriously?  It sounds like you have a frat house not an apartment complex. 

I'm not familiar with community living.  Are the tenants a protected class?  Do the tenants sign leases?  Does the lease state they have to abide by community rules and not disturb others?  If so, then I would send notice to cease these activities or face eviction. Document the specifics of each incident and send proper notice for each violation.  You will need it to show the judge you followed the correct procedure.

Is this person an actual tenant? If not, I would tell him to leave the property or you will call the police for trespassing, then do so.

Yes the person who put the dye in the shower is a tenant.  They are also in relation to a family member and a lease was not signed though all tenants are typically asked to read, sign and follow a code of conduct.  The tenants in the community living rent rooms and share common spaces (ie bathrooms, kitchen and shared living spaces).

I would immediately move to get them out ASAP, however that may be where you are based on this lack of lease (which may help you). I would give them no second chances (they had a chance to act like an adult and chose not to). Being a family member doesn't mean they get to act like that, if anything, they need to set an example for everyone else. Where I am, that would be a 30-day notice of cancellation of leave (in VA, it is automatically month-to-month if there is no lease in place).
