I'm writing because I've been renting a place in Draper for a while now and have learned that there has been an ongoing situation in the house where one of the tenants has been violent and abusive to some of the others. Not to me, and this is not something that I've witnessed myself, but it is definitely something that has created a situation where the owner (we are all renting) has decided to sell. As I had been talking with some of the other tenants, I learned a few stories about times when one of the tenants (T) had screamed at some of the others, broken a number of things in a rage, and more.

I have bene living here since June of last year, and I have occasionally had to access the detached garage in the backyard to access tools and parts for my car. Whta I had seen out there I didn't think much of, but as I started to do a little research I began to get worried that some of the intentions of the owner of this stuff might be somewhat nefarious. Perhaps I have just seen too much Breaking Bad, and I certainly didn't learn enough in phyics or chemistry classes to know what or how all this stuff could be used for, but I do believe that I have qualified that some of the stuff can be used to manufacture items such as fireworks, etc.. Since the items seem to belong to the one tenant that has a history of being violent, I just wanted to speak to someone to try to determine if this is stuff that we need to be worried about. It may simply be that this is just a hobby or that it could be school-related, but since I'm moving out and since the owner has decided to sell, I feel that it would be irresponsible of me not to say anything. I'm sure that by way of this note that someone can be engaged to help assuage a few of my worries, but I definitely don't want to have said nothing and then find out later that something had happened.

This is all stuff that is in that garage, which is pretty much a common area, but it's not at all a subject that I know anything about, and so just wanted to send out feelers. I've started to post to get some more details from anyone 'in-the-know', and the truth is that after hearing stories about this guy that has me thankful I never saw some of his behavior, but I worry about the guy and hope that he's alright, or at the very least that he gets whatever help he needs to adjust his attitude. But the stuff in that garage, I just have no idea about.

Any suggestions or commends are welcome.
