Upon arriving on scene, officers discovered numerous windows on the leasing office had been shattered. Inspection of the building revealed various items were missing from the office.
Later that same day, one of the missing items was located inside an apartment at the complex. During initial investigation, officers were able to identify a suspect as Isiah Jamal Fredericks.
