Has anyone else noticed an increase in the drug activity in the bus shelter at 25th & E Union (on the north side of Union heading towards downtown)?
I called in to 911 at approx 6:55am to report about 6 to 8 people in the bus shelter dealing and smoking drugs. As they saw me calling the police, they started to scatter, but I was able to describe 3 of the suspects (see below). I should have used my cell phone camera to take pictures (maybe next time). Since they were starting to scatter, I got the impression from the 911 dispatcher that they were not going to send anyone to investigate…aargh!!! As much as I like the bus shelter, I would like Metro to remove it. I’ve lived in the neighborhood and taken this bus for over 12 years now. I’m sick and tired of the urine smelling, drug infested bus shelter that I’ve seen a multitude of people either dealing or doing drugs in and sometimes they are just completely passed out in the shelter. I would love to get these peoples pictures and just post them on the telephone poles around the neighborhood.
White male approx 6 ft tall, shaved head, wearing a peach colored shirt (sweat shirt type) and black running pants with 2 white stripes down each side.
Black female approx 5’4″ wearing a black hat, black jacket, khaki pants with multiple zippers and shoes that were like a sandal/flip flop. The white male was lighting up her pipe for her.
Black male approx 5’7″ wearing black jacket and bright red baseball hat. Baggy black shorts.
That’s all I could get out to the 911 operator before the bus came and I went off to work.
