A former MTSU student leased the condo that he purchased and lived-in while a student. Friends of the current renter told Murfreesboro Police Detective Michael Yates that a visitor did the extensive vandalism of over nine-thousand dollars. In fact, Detective Yates learned that phone video showed the suspect spraying paint on the condo's walls. Police contacted the suspect's parents, and they convinced their son to turn himself in. The victim says this would never have happened without Detective Yates' professional police work.
