Yeah, remember that neighbor I referred to as a "thug"?

So, the thuggy neighbor with the two pitbulls and the loud music in the middle of the night who refused to answer the door when neighbors knocked who I theorized was hiding from the law?

They got him.

We had a stand-off occur next door today for several hours during which time we were asked by the police to stay in our house. The street was blocked from traffic. There were numerous police vehicles including a van and a large step-van, each of which was apparently a supply/transport van for a SWAT unit. We had two different SWAT units in addition to all the uniformed police!! Cops were in and out of our back yard, I saw a few of those assault shields, quite a few semi-automatic rifles, and even ladders!


He was a no-show for a court date awhile back on a vandalism charge so the cops waited until a time when they were able to witness him outside the house, thus verifying his presence (since he wouldn't answer the door). That began a stand-off that ended just a few minutes ago with his apprehension. I don't know what's happened to the dogs or the woman that lives there with him. Apparently, she wasn't home.

Now, the real question I have is, since when do the cops dispatch canine units, two SWAT teams, and numerous uniforms for an outstanding vandalism warrant? Hmmm. I originally hypothesized that the reason they were being so low profile was that he was hiding from some major crime, probably from up North judging from their accents. I mean, a young man in his late 20s or early 30s doesn't stay home, not working, and spending 90+ percent of his time in the house for no reason.

At any rate, I'm glad he's gone. For now.
