Are you up to no good? Someone is watching you
Tuesday, Aug. 25, 2015 — Fed up with crime, residents who live around the historic Railroad Depot and near Riverside Park in Susanville have taken the first step toward ending the crime in their neighborhood by launching a new neighborhood watch.
Several residents shared scary stories of criminal activity in the neighborhood including burglaries, drug dealing and drug use. One woman talked about a strange, uninvited man coming into her home and scaring her daughter. Another victim talked about windows being shot out. Another alleged someone threw a loaded pistol in the gutter, but he couldn’t get the police to do anything about it. The residents said they’ve had to endure drug houses — two of which have been closed down with help from the property owners, but a third is still in operation — and people the residents believe are up to no good roam up and down their streets all night long.
