My sister in law lives in North Carolina. She called today to tell my wife that her apartment (which is located in the not-so-great part of town) was broken into while she was gone. Her back door is a sliding door, and is locked both with a bar that holds it in place, and a mechanism lock. The window above her bed is screwed shut, because the previous tenants broke the lock. When she came home from work, the bar for the sliding doors was gone, and the door was unlocked. The window above her bed was slightly open, and it can now open all the way. There were several boot prints on her bed.
Aside from the bar for the back door being gone, the intruder took nothing else. Not her TV, not her social security card, nothing that she owns. She just moved in, so not all of her stuff is there, but she had some valuable things that are still there.
She called the local PD, and notified her apartment complex owners. The owners put a new lock on the window and seem unconcerned. The PD has not yet talked to her, they said someone would be there in a couple hours.
I asked her about obtaining a firearm, and she said that she thinks that her lease prohibits firearms. Is that truly legal? Thanks for the input ya'll.
