LETTER: Once sleepy Agassiz is no more

Reader Harvey Andrew urges residents to be vigilant in the face of crime

Dear Editor,

Vandals strike Morrow Road Saturday night (Sept. 14). A few of the street signs on Morrow Road have been knocked over.

We rub shoulders with the bad guys on our very streets. We rub shoulders with them in our stores. We rub shoulders with them on the #11 Agassiz-Harrison transit bus.

The drug trade in Agassiz seems to be booming. I constantly see new faces in town. Some of those new faces are drug dealers and drug mules. They are very easy to spot. They stick out like clowns at a funeral.

Morrow Road is a hot bed for break and enters, and drug deals.

They have no conscience. They even use the Saint Anthony’s Catholic Church parking lot for their drug deals.

The sleepy town that was once Agassiz is long gone.

Be aware of your surroundings. Don’t let your guard down. Be vigilant. Be alert.

-Harvey Andrew, Agassiz
