A few years ago I contacted our local police about a neighbor kid/young adult who I suspected was dealing drugs from his house. Back then, his dad still lived in the house. But every time dad left town, there was a flurry of activity and parties, with cars coming and going at all hours, never staying more than 5 minutes or so. At the time of my report to the police, they said they were aware of some activity there and had been watching him for some time. Said I was welcome to phone in license plate numbers and that if activity was stepping up, to call dispatch and let them know and they'd send a car around just in case there was anything that might give them an excuse to stop one of the visitors or investigate the property further. Well, life got busy and things seemed to quiet down over there. Then the dad moved out a year or two ago. And now it appears that just the guy and his girlfriend live there. He doesn't seem to have a "job" because his truck is always there and I rarely see him leave the house. Last year I saw an unmarked police car and two armed plainclothes officers knock on the door with some papers in hand. Perhaps he was being served a warrant? At any rate, lately, I've noticed cars stopping by the house again in the middle of the day. And since we live on a cul-de-sac, I KNOW whether or not a car belongs here. On Friday, a car with three 20-somethings stopped at the house. One guy got out and went inside. Another guy inside was rummaging around in the car, and I noticed he was barefoot when he got out. The driver just sat there. Five minutes later when the visitor came out, he was talking very loudly at his buddies in the car, using lots of foul language and acting like some kind of thug. He very dramatically got in the car, slammed the door and they drove off. So I decided to call the police again. My old contact has been replaced with someone else, and all I got was voicemail, but I did leave my info and asked him to please call. I'm really hoping they respond and that we can get a little closer to closing this guy down. I'm fairly certain that one of his late-night party visitors was the culprit to husband's truck getting broken into and robbed a few years ago. This guy is a hermit, but when he does come outside, he gives everyone menacing looks and does a good job of intimidation. His next-door neighbor has told me he's also suspicious of drug dealing over there. It's just so lousy having someone like that living so close by.
