    Sometime u have to go to the station to compain about it..Then they keep an eye out until they catch them..dealers are smart it takes time. They are very busy with domestic calls all day boyfriend hit me an took my phone or my car or won't leave my house kick my door in, daughter or son fighting the parents, family doing drugs but won't leave my house then the caller let the person back in an calls again the next day with the same problems.sad but true.I listen to this everyday. They just can't answer every call that they get. lots of reports about shooting daily, thefts, robbery an etc.this stuff is every minute of the day.And it's all over the city..just keep reporting they will get caught.
