The complainant alleges: The complainant let a friend that was living with him use his truck because his vehicle was broken down. About ago he noticed scratches on the vehicle. The police were called and when they arrived, he told the officers he wanted his keys back from the friend.

The officers told him he would just have to change the locks and they let his friend go. The officers started to walk away. When he asked them to stay as witnesses while he checked his vehicle for other damages they told him that does not have anything to do with APD because it was a civil matter. He is angry about the way he was treated.
