A neighborhood in southwest Detroit got tired of a local drug dealer destroying their community. So they decided to fight back. And they won, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Here’s an excerpt of the story:
Over two years, neighbors logged hundreds of records about the goings-on around 9210 Lane St., then handed the stack to police.
Alkazoff was sentenced in December to at least three years in prison.
“The switch got flipped,” said Detroit Police Sgt. Brandon Cole, a lifelong resident of the neighborhood. “It went from a dirty secret to a drive-through, and people were leaving because of the drug dealing.”
