I live around the corner n it’s sad that these things are happening in our own neighborhoods, we don’t feel safe. Yet along there has been a few crimes in these apartments and yet more crimes in Elkhart county, I think the apts should invest in putting cameras because you will loose clients and we don not feel safe in our neighborhood anymore ,
