Since April 2016 of this year, there have been 30 incidences of car jackings and/or theft at the Citgo Gas Station. We also feel the Barbershop next door to the Citgo attracts the type of people associated with these crimes. I own property in the area and my parents live in the community as well and we are fed up with the crime and lack of security provided by these business owners. The goal is to deem the Citgo & Barbershop a Public Nuisance & unsafe place of business within our community. We are seeking to have the Citgo's Liquor License revoked because the business owner has failed to provide a safe environment and we feel the Alcohol & beer sales contributes to the crime at this location. The most recent occurrence happened on 10/18/16. Because of the loitering, lack of security, external surveillance cameras and lack of attention to this matter we are expecting this to continue to happen.
In addition there have been over 100 Car jackings/thefts at the QuikTrip located at 5705 Fulton Industrial Blvd since April 2016.
***UPDATE*** 3 MORE ROBERRIES AT THE CITGO ON 10/23/16
