An Orlando apartment complex that has had a history of difficulties was the location on Friday April 10 of an arrest of an armed man who was literally caught with his pants down. Â According to media reports Orlando Police were responding to a report of a man wearing camouflage pants walking around in the area with a gun in his hand, when they discovered Jaudohn Hicks in a compromised position.
â€śWhen 27-year-old Hicks was ordered to get out of the SUV and lay on the ground, the officer noticed that he “had camouflage pants down around his ankles.”
Also according to reports a pistol and drugs were found in the vehicle.
You may ask yourself what sort of community would these sorts of arrests take place in? Well would you believe the below photograph is taken from this apartment complexâ€™s website:
You may be thinking â€śIt doesnâ€™t look like the sort of place that has guys walking around with guns and drugs who might get caught by the police having sex in a parked vehicle on propertyâ€ť. But, that is what is reported. This is another example of how crime problems will escalate in an area that doesnâ€™t respond to repeat incidents by contracting with a quality private armed security company to patrol the property. The only way to control risks and deter criminal activity is to face the threat with the proper countermeasures. According to the 911 police records that our analysts researched, this apartment complex has had multiple calls for service involving a shooting, batteries, and disturbances just in the past 30 days before this guy was reportedly walking around with a gun in his hand and having sex in a vehicle parked right in front of peopleâ€™s homes. Would you want to pay to live in a community with those issues? Would you renew your lease here?
If the complex management had quality, trained, armed security officers Â patrolling this property and focused on deterring criminal activity, it is very unlikely this incident and others that have happened on this property in the past few weeks would have occurred at all. Many times, apartment complex operators choose not to invest the funds to source the correct solution. This is a mistake.Â In the current environment of internet and social media, the reputations of these sorts of properties are tarnished quickly in the market. Â If a person is harmed by criminal activity, legal liability can result for the owners and management if there was a history of ongoing crime. Large multimillion dollar judgements and settlements have been paid by Owners and management companies who have been found to be negligent by failing to provide the correct security measures.
