I put up a surveillance camera on my property because my

I put up a surveillance camera on my property because my neighbor has repeatedly on a daily basis spraying black flag propane insecticide fogger, which is extremly dangerous and she sprays 4-5 x a day, so we are trying to catch her doing this and we even installed a privacy fence that costed us over $12,000.00. She called the police because she said my cameras were catching her garage window on my camera, the police office made me show him what was on my motion activated game camera that was facing our side of our property at our privacy fence, when I showed him the video it clearly showed that my camera was not recording in her garage window it only caught slightly out of focus her garage window, no other house windows, he made me take down my game camera, I put an arlo on my property facing my fence which is motion activated as well, she called the cops again claiming I was her windows, her property sits about 8-10 feet higher then my property and I live below grade our property line actually extends up the hill where our privacy fence is and we have 2ft of proeprty on the other side of the fence, the office made me take him into my house to show him on my computer the video of the arlo once again, no pictures of her windows, only my fence. Was it legal for the officers to do this without a search warrant and make me take down my cameras, and what can I do regarding this neighbor, I have 4 doctors who have confirmed my lung problems are due to chemical exposure am in the process of getting more test done, I do not have asthma, as I am seeing a special asthma allergist doctor who specializes in chemical exposure, what can I do to get her to stop spraying these pesticides in my yard officers tell me I need video proof even though I have two witnesses to the smell coming severely into my yard our privacy fence is over 352 square feet long? I live in Berks County PA, Bernville, PA 19506

The home I live in is financed in my father in laws name. I

The home I live in is financed in my father in laws name. I am a month to month tenant. No contract or lease agreement. I got a notice to vacate that appeared to be signed by him the sole mortgage holder. Instead his name was signed by his wife. I know she doesn't have right to sign his name. Was this a crime on her part? Does it make the notice void? Does it give me any legal options?
