Tucson Police invade my neighborhood

The Tucson Police invaded my neighborhood tonight.  Actually, invade may be a strong term for the situation.

The officers were looking for someone in the neighborhood directly south and east of my apartment complex.  Right after I shot the photos you'll see below, a couple of officers on foot walked past me in the parking lot here in the complex.  They were scouring the neighborhood looking for their man or woman and even had a police dog with them.

I listened to the police scanner for a while after I snapped these pictures and I think they found who they were looking for but it took a while.  It's not easy to find what you're searching for in the dark even if you have a helicopter, a dozen police officers, and a dog working on it.

Bad boys bad boys... whatcha gonna do?

(By the way, my Canon SX50 camera with the super duper 1200mm zoom lens came in handy for this.  I was able to get these photos from over a block away).
