When you park in that lot be very careful not to leave anything valuable in your vehicle. They like to break in and take what doesn’t belong to them. I don’t have a radio in my truck because they have stolen it twice. I have a hole in my dash where the radio used to be and would you believe they tried to break in my truck AGAIN!! I HAVE AN ALARM ON MY TRUCK AND THEY ARE STILL TRYING TO GET IN. Be careful parking there the police won’t do anything about it BUT they want you to give a donation. Yeah like I’m going to do that!!
