    There are well known drug users stealing and using drugs all around town with warrants also. even when the police are called and told where the criminal is they do NOTHING. yet someone who has no arrest record who would get stoppped for a minor speeding ticket or something like that really gets harrassed. SOMETHING is wrong with the agents who are suppose to be undercover with this drug problem. I DONT even do drugs and Iam sure I could find out who and where they are coming from!!! what a SHAME.wow lorain.
