While conducting the surveillance The Detective observed a vehicle park in the parking lot of a closed business in the immediate vicinity. The Detective then observed the two males, dressed in dark clothing walk over to the City Center Apartment complex entering via a hole in the fence, bypassing the complex’s security gate. Fearing for the personal safety of the residents and their property, The Detective contacted dispatch while continuing to watch the suspects. After several minutes, the suspects returned to their vehicle and exited the area.
