Every article on here, about Lacey Twp is about DRUGS, THEFTS, and ASSAULTS. I would personally like to thank the worthless LACEY TWP COMMITTEE MEMBERS FOR USING THEIR POLITICAL POSITIONS FOR THEIR OWN PERSONAL GAIN AND FOR LETTING OUR WONDERFULL TOWN GO TO SH*T. I CANT EVEN ATTEND OR WATCH A TOWN MEETING ANYMORE WITH SUCH AN ARROGANT SO CALLED MAYOR OR THE LITTLE CHINEESE WOMAN WHO CANT REMEMBER HER OWN DECISIONS FROM THE LAST MEETING OR THAT CHUBBY PAWN WHO BAGS MY GROCERIES….I DON’T EVEN WANA GET STARTED ABOUT A LITTLE BIT OF LUCK. SOMETHING NEEDS TO CHANGE ASAP THEY KEEP RAISING TAXES FOR WHAT, I DON’T SEE ANY NEW OR ADDITIONAL TWP WORKERS OR COPS ON THE ROAD I JUST READ ABOUT THE CRIMES GETTING WORSE AND THERE HAPPENING EVERYDAY. SO DON’T GET UPSET WHEN YOUR HOUSE GETS BROKEN INTO AGAIN OR WHEN YOU GET ASSAULTED FROM A DRUG DEALING HOOKER AT THE FOHO AND DON’T COMPLAIN WHEN YOU GAMBLE ALL YOUR MONEY AWAY AT THE LACEY CASINO NEXT TO THE NEW MARINA BUFFETT ENJOY YOUR STAY…I LOVE LACEY

@ Randy You really are ignorant. the only difference between now and 5 years ago is that there is a media avenue to report it. Do some research. How about maybe the Lacey Police are catching more of these people and that's why you are hearing more about it. You usually don't hear about the people getting away with crimes in the newspaper...DUH! This is a fine town and I think it is great that they are catching these people. Would you rather have them not so that you don't hear about it. Simple....don't like it....move out. People like you are little gnats that complain and complain without doing anything about it. Why don't you run for office? I'll be your campaign manager - you could shake up the whole town!

Too bad They didn't really arrest him. He was taken to community and r.o.r. no you cant rehabilitate him. I tried for 6 years. If they had actually put him in jail maybe I could have gotten him into court for the child support he has never paid for the 6 yr old daughter he abandoned. He's still in lacey from what I'm told. Lieing to his new gf pretending to be sober and taking care of her 3 kids. They should lock him up and loose the keys.
