There is nothing like good neighbors if this is the case. Great job by the Police also!

Did a neighbor report this? Or was the tenant home at the time? If a neighbor reported it, then on behalf of the tenant I'd like to say "Thank you." In our apartments I think we could be dead in our apartment for weeks before our neighbors would notice. Being a good neighbor makes the community better, keep it up.
