Good Morning ATS!
Had a few hours of excitement last night.
The Caretaker from the other building called me and said the cops were over at his building trying to catch some dirt bag that we have been trying to
get off of our property because he is is a known drug dealer and doesn't even live there. So I go over to the building and talk to the caretaker for a
second, and he tells me the guy jumped out a window when the cops knocked on his babies momma's door. So I went out a side door, over to the
playground in the back and asked the kids there if some guy just ran past, and they all pointed towards my building and said he went that way.
Meanwhile, the police canine unit shows up.
So I walk around the back of my building and see him duck into the back parking lot and then go into my building. (someone let him in, even though it
is a secure building, which makes me really mad)
I started to run after him, and chased him thru my building.
So I finally get this guy cornered in the front side entry, and I tell him, you have to walk out those doors right then and head in that direction,
and pointed towards the police cars parked in front of the other building, and he looks me in the eye and goes "Who the F are you?" and I told him, "I
am the caretaker of this building, and you have warrants for your arrest, and those police over there are looking for you, and they brought the dogs."
I don't think I have ever seen anyone's eyes go as wide as this guys did.
At that point he bolted back up the stairs, and ran down the 2nd floor hallway. I wasn't about to chase any more, I waved down a cop and told him
where he went. They brought the dog in the building, but the guy ran out a back door.
The cops lost him.
So I go back to the other building and wait for our manager with the other caretaker.
After she gets there, we are standing out front telling her what happened, and someone comes out and says he is out back again, talking to someone who
The cops were already gone at this point.
So I go around one side of the building, and my manager and other caretaker go thru the building and out the back exit and sure enough, there he is
talking to some girl. He sees me coming and they both start walking down to the building, then they pass my boss and other caretaker,and I look at
them and ask if that was him cause I couldn't see the guys face because it was getting dark, and they say it is, so I keep following, the other
caretaker also starts following the guy, my boss yells the woman's name, she stops, and the guy just keeps walking, so both of us caretakers follow
him and as he rounds the corner of my building he bolts, so we chase him into the swamp across from my building.....
Good enough for me, the dirt bag knows we don't want or allow people like that around our buildings or on our property. This complex has had years of
a bad reputation, and the management company has worked very hard since it picked up these buildings to change that. There have been some great
changes and people feel safe here now, and when I lived here 7 years ago, you didn't want to go alone to your car.
We are working very hard to make this a safe place, and people like that who deal drugs, and bring a lot of trouble, are not welcome here.
Hopefully this guy got the message.....
I could care less what a person does, unless it harms the apartment complex or it's residents, and once it is made my job to keep someone away, I am
just like a k-9 dog, I won't stop until you are caught if you are not supposed to be here.
He is now on the trespass list, and not supposed to be here.....
So it was an interesting night!
