I cannot believe that this case was closed! This was a armed robbery which happened at 4pm. This is a very populated area with children. The elementary school is 1 mile away. If some "drug addict" (probably) is robbing people for their habit, they need to find them quick. There are way too many people using the bike trail & park next door to close this case.

Folks, you can no longer depend on the police to protect you. You must take full responsibility to protect yourself! Police departments are understaffed. Crime is running rampant, no community is immune. Refuse to be a victim, learn how to protect yourself, your family, and loved ones, before it's too late.
