Good job Lacey PD! I'm so sick and tired of reading about this crap. I bring my kids there all the time, why do they choose such visable places to make drug deals. Oh, I fogot, they're all LOSERS and have no brains!

If you would kindly correct your information regarding "Jessica Frick". Her last name is Ross, and I know this because she is my EX wife. I would like my last name kept as far away from this story as possible. Thank You in advance.

Great job by the Lacey Township Police Department. Gille Park is such a wonderful place for the citizens of Lacey to enjoy. It is sad to even hear that such a thing was taking place at that Park. Good to once again see, that the Lacey Police Department is on top of such matters.

Hopefully, with our tax increase I want to see an officer placed in Lacey High School during school hours with his own office. The schools that went this route are now drug-free. These kids in Lacey pass drugs in parking lot, walking down hall, during class it makes me puke!!! The last school that went with this procedure had that school cleaned up in 2 weeks..my taxes went up 350 you have the money so put it to good use..........NO MORE USERS
