ORLANDO, Fla. - Orlando police were going door-to-door at a troubled apartment complex in desperate need of repairs Friday.

Residents at the Bordeadux and Lakeside Villages apartments said they are not happy with the increased police presence.

The units which were owned by PDQ have been beset by problems, but have now been taken over by Fannie Mae.

Residents said they felt the police were harassing them. They said the police were checking people's IDs to make sure they still live in the apartment complexes.

Residents said it's one thing to have patrols to deter criminals, but they said two dozen police showing up was overkill.

"Do it take all of those cars, do it take all of that? No, it don't," said one resident.

Two dozen police showed up and talked with residents.

They walked through vacant apartments making sure no was inside.

Some residents said officers came into their homes, making them feel uncomfortable.

Police said they are assisting code enforcement with trying to make sure people living at the apartments are legally supposed to be there.
