It has the team at Zachary's BBQ a little concerned...they all know the young man next door that was held up at gunpoint...and I am very concerned about my staff working late night. Are there consistent police patrols that can occur at least until these businesses in this area close for the evening? I know law enforcement cannot be everywhere, but, passing through periodically at night can certainly be a deterrent for some thugs, and more importantly put business owners and their staff a little more at ease.
