“I’m so happy they got arrested," neighbor Caroline Dondi said. "I’m glad the police take this seriously to get them off the streets. We work hard for the things that we have so they need to stop taking our things.”
Dondi lives in the area and says she’ll be doing some things differently.
“Not walking out by myself at night that’s for sure. On the next-door app we see a lot of this going on in the neighborhood, so I’m really happy that they arrested them and got them off the streets.”
FLPD wants to thank the residents for their cooperation throughout this incident and reminds everyone that if they "see something, say something."
