11:55 to 11:57pm - I head outside to inform the officers that the buliding is supposed to be locked up and empty. But they, and myself witnessed a couple of disturbing things. For one, there's music playing in there and two, they've got Christmas lights up. They asked me questions, such as had I seen anybody loitering in front of the building, anybody going through the back, you know, general police work.
11:58 to 12:00am - I watch through the window of what's going on. Meanwhile, back on the scanner, I heard 2523 call for a supervisor. The building's supposed to be vacant and I guess they wanted permission to search the building fully.
12:03 to 12:15am - I go back outside, this time with my mom, to answer any questions the police had for us. A few more units pull up. Officers litterally have the building surrounded. There's two plain-clothed cops here as well. I personally witness the greatest police work ever. I see the officers go through the back, search all floors, go in through the windows, etc. Great job to all officers! And to top it off, they were nice to us. The job is coded 19P, since the place is secure, for now. But now I'm sure officers will keep a close eye on that building.
