South Orange now! The "street Vermin"is moving West! A man robbed/car jacked the other morning of his car,another man punched and robbed from behind by 3 creeps and robber of his cell phone while walking along the main drag,So.Orange Ave. Folks,any one of you could be their next victim.You must continually be alert to your surroundings,stay focused as to who may approach you as well as who could be coming up behind you as well.Remember,these criminals are cowards seldom is it one on one,make it a point to avoid the packs or anytime there are multiple groups.Stay in the open and near other people wherever possible. Respectfully,Gregory L.Mitchell-W.Caldwell
