Kudos to the Lawrence police. And thank you to the W. 10th residents who are working toward keeping their neighborhood clean. Good stuff!

Okay, there's only one residence in the 200 block of W. 10th.

That is the Community Open Shelter.

People dealing dope out of the Open Shelter?!!?

You don't do alot of time for selling pot or "'shrooms", but the cocaine will get him in big trouble.

And why shoplift if you already have the drugs? I guess so he can go to yellow house (or the 21st century way to fence stolen goods, Ebay) to get more money after he used up his "stash".
