  1. This guy is always asking for money! He’s approached me several times on 2nd St. saying he’s homeless & hungry but yet I’ve seen him go into the NoePlace Apts. When I offered to buy he food he got irritated & wanted cash! This guy needs help!

    • He wants cash because he is a heroin addict. He stole from the store i work at mutiple times till we caught him and seen he dropped a small bag of drugs a couple of times. He definitely needs help. He probably wouldn’t have a better life and more money if he stayed sober.

    • This man came my workplace a few weeks ago, and was caught stealing. He was made to empty his pockets and came out with a crackpipe and crack. Made him throw both away. He is a repeat offender!
