Wouldn't doubt if it had something to do with selling prescription drugs..Residents of Holliday City are the biggest drug dealers in the town.Social Security just doesn't cut it for most of those residents

the cops are too busy arresting people sitting in parks after dark doing NOTHING. Easy money I guess. Or chasing down those that go to Lacey Materials. Guess they find that more important than fighting the drug war here in Lacey.

If the Lacey police aren't doing anything about the robbery - even when they are being given the names (and probably descriptions) of the perps then contact Ocean County Sheriff's Dept and let them know.

Sept. 30 A home on Hollywood Boulevard was burglarized at 9:24 p.m. The resident, who was home at the time, heard someone inside and witnessed the suspects climbing out of her son’s bedroom window downstairs. Two suspects were identified and the incident is being investigated. SEE IT SAYS THEY WERE IDENTIFIED BUT THEY WEREN'T ARRESTED
