quality of life in this area is non-existent because of the illegal drug activity
also prostitution and occupying boarded up vacant homes
ive been robbed on saltonstall for what little money i had $10
its out of control. All they is sell that stuff all day and all night. You got kids waiting for the bus in the morning and their they are, selling right in front of them. Then same thing when they get off of the bus. And the cops are no good, they don't do anything besides sit there and watch them then drive off.
I was at a friends house and went to walk to the store and got to the corner and got asked what I wanted. I turned around and went back to mt friends house. There were so many people just standing outside on both sides of the street, it looked out of control and I did not see 1 cop.
Obviously a drug hot spot given the number of SCF drug tickets reported around this location. Will anything be done?
From the New Haven Register 1/18/2012:
"Lequincy Smith, 27, of 114 Popular [sic] St., was charged with possession of narcotics, possession of narcotics with the intent to sell, possession of marijuana and interfering with a police officer. Lequincy Smith was released to state police after posting a $25,000 bond, and is scheduled to appear in Superior Court in Meriden Feb. 2.
The operator of the vehicle, Zephaniah Willoughby, 25, also of 114 Popular [sic ]St., was issued a summons for operating an unregistered vehicle and operating without insurance.
there needs to be more done. Look, the cops snab 2 people and then they let it go. What are we to do now, sit back and just watch.
Narcotics has raided the house at 113 Poplar St where most of the activity is at least 3 times that I know of. The police have made several arrests for everything from Narcotics to Trespassing. I see the police there all the time. The community including me should go out there take pictures and march on the block and let them know we dont like what is happening and they should stop.

I see people yell at the people who come and buy the drugs and the drug dealers not to come over there because of the kids and it doesnt work cause they just go and park down the street and do what they do. It is funny when the cops leave a cop car on the corner with noone in it - like they cant see that it is empty.
