My family lives on Meriline Street and encountered a similar situation a couple of years ago with a next door neighbor who was dealing drugs and had numerous individuals coming and going at all hours of the day and night. Being a parent of two small children, this was not tolerated by us and our other neighbors. With the aid of Mayor Robart, the Falls P.D. and our councilwoman Mary Ellen Pike, Arrests were made and several people did go to jail and eventually these individuals were shut down and moved out. Thanks to our city leaders we now have our neighborhood back and can live in peace and not be fearful for our children's lives and others.
