Daniel Lee is the victim of a break-in and vandalism crime spree. He says he's been reaching out to law enforcement for years, but they haven't done enough to keep his home safe.
"This house needs a home, and a home is the people," says Lee.
He can't keep anyone in the property for a long period of time, because of the crime in his neighborhood.
"Everyone of them has been intimidated out of it because of the crime."
In the past month, Lee's home was broken into and vandalized on three different occasions. His tenant moved out, and Lee is left with holes in his walls, and his pockets. The damages could cost up to $14,000 to repair if he hires an outside contractor to do the work.
"I've got a lot of skin, but I can't put the cash in, I'm a retired man."
Public information officer for the Macon Police Department, Jami Gaudet, says as of today there are extra officers patrolling the area in hopes of keeping the neighborhood free of trouble.
