Jon Maresh lives just a couple houses down from where the incident happened. He said his cameras have caught several suspicious incidents at that location. Several neighbors called it a "problematic" house.
"It's sickening. I've been here 18 years and it just, it used to be a nice community and it's just gone to crap," Maresh said. "My boat was broken into, the car was broken into, across the street, car was broken into, neighbors down the street, cars were broken into. I mean, where does it end?"
He said he hopes there will be an increased police presence in the neighborhood to help decrease the amount of crime.
