This past week we had a home broken into in our park. A gun was stolen, along with prescription medications. Turns out the perpetrator was the (juvenile?) son of a resident of mine who is purchasing her home from the park’s former owners.
I would not allow a tenant with a son like this into the park if she were applying for residency, and I think my standards should be the same for residents already in the park.
But I’ve not been able to 100% conclusively establish that it was this juvenile who committed the crimes. Everyone in the park says it was this particular kid, but the police refuse to tell me anything(!) citing ‘privacy reasons.’ The police have cited similar ‘privacy reasons’ in the past regarding a situation with an adult in my park as well.
So, my questions are:
Has anyone had similar experiences with the police refusing to tell you what is going on on your own property?!?
Can/should I confront this juvenile’s mother about this issue? Is it legal for me to evict based on ‘what everyone says’ rather than an official police report? I suppose I could evict her ‘for no reason…’ and just terminate the rental agreement.
