Drop House
A few hundred dollars of pot. Pathetic.

Marijuana? What a joke. What do they pay you guys? Why don't you arrest the drop house and meth cook lab next door I told you about 1 year ago. Good law enforcement anyway. My neighbor is at least quiet and keeps his lawn mowed.

All that training and all they can come with with is a little weed. Waste of manpower. Might want to check out the so called candy shop at the old Harmony village. Now its called Peachtree Apartments. The name change will help. Some kids were talking about the candy shop (thats what they call it) run by a grand mother. And its not candy they are picking up. Sorry thats all I know. It pays to listen to kids at restaurants.
