  1. Holy cow it is bad enough that we are getting the gang related drug dealers coming here now we are getting known murderers headed our way. Anyone out on the streets be safe and stay away from strangers now a days you never know who you are going to meet up with. Hopefully he will be found and arrested before he gets this far we are sure collecting all the bad ones here. Not even safe to go out on the streets anymore in the daytime or night time. One thing they do have a good picture of him posted hopefully this will help to lead to his arrest.
