There's been a lot of robberies going on at that Wawa and right down the street behind it.. There should be a police officer stationed halfway down that road with everything that's happened back there recently. It's not safe

parkway is right there they can do whatever n jump north or south and there gone..its a shame that the headquarters is right there and people still get away with stealing..all the cameras and they still get away thats ridiculous

They were pretty brave to rob the wawa right next to the police station. Why didn't any cameras catch the license plate or car? It is really sad to read what this town is coming to. Growing up my mom used to leave our door unlocked. Now I am terrified my house is going to get robbed even when its locked up!

It wouldn't matter if the Wawa was located inside of the Lacey Police Department. With the close proximity to the GSP, as soon as people realize a crime was committed and they report it, the thieves are halfway to Toms River. Any business or residence next to a major highway is a prime target.
