He said that when he told his neighbors "all they do is laugh in his face." On this morning of Jan. 8 he reportedly cleaned up the feces around his car and put it in the garbage can. The neighbor came out and took it out and threw it at the caller. 

He said he had spoken with the landlord as well. The officer spoke with the landlord who agreed he too has had an ongoing problem with the dogs in the first floor apartment. 

Police tried to speak with these tenants but there was no answer at the door. They went to the husband's place of employment but it was not open yet. 

The matter was noted for the record at this time.
