    A recently opened underpass has

    I am wondering if my sentences are grammatically correct.

    A recently opened underpass has become a haunt of prostitutes, alcoholics, drug addicts and pickpockets. Now the local authorities and the police are at a loss how to solve the problem.

    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    While "a haunt for" is possible too, I don't consider "a haunt of" incorrect.
