Tenant says complex refuses to fix surveillance cameras despite car thefts, break-ins

DENVER -- A tenant living at the Loretto Heights Apartments is fed up after he said the apartment complex refuses to fix broke surveillance cameras despite car thefts and break-ins in the parking lot.

Ellis Jackson said his car was burglarized twice in the past two months while parked at complex. Last week, someone drove off with his 1998 Acura Integra.

During all three incidents, his car was parked within view of surveillance cameras. However, the cameras are broken so police have been unable to review the footage and look for possible suspects.

"It’s very frustrating to have cameras and none of them are operating," Jackson said.

His complaints to the Loretto Heights Apartment managers have gone unresolved. The cameras remain broken and Jackson remains frustrated.

"I want to make a point, you know? Had the cameras been working, the police could have gone right in there and reviewed the film and said, OK, we know who has your car, what the suspect looks like, etc." Jackson said.

"Tenants pay a lot of money for all the amenities we have. And if you have cameras, make sure they work."

Management refused to answer questions as to why the cameras remain broken.

Jackson's car is a 1998 Acura Integra with damage on the left fender. The license plate number is DQG-312.

Since the vehicle is older, Jackson only has liability coverage on it.

He's started a GoFundMe page to raise money for the costs of purchasing a new car if his isn't returned.
