Male suspect fits the discription exactly of the guy a few months ago causing a disturbance a Parkwood using pepper spray on bystanders to make his get away. Same discription, same hoody with the red dragon logo on it.

Concealed carry ftw!

    You are not seriously suggesting that concealed carry is the answer to this issue.

    If you are Im sure there is an island for you somewhere ;-).

    I hope they catch this punk. I know bike theft is a problem but armed theft is a whole different ball game.

Neighborhood around the 7/11 starts to get bad

There’s little pockets in PG with the lower cost housing townhouses where the crime seems to pick up moreso than other areas…
