My neighbors in East Swope Highlands aren't ready to just sit back and allow drug dealers and criminals to move into our neighborhood and take over.
An operation of car thieves and dope dealers moved into a commercial building at the corner of 67th and Richmond last Fall and we immediately went to work on getting rid of them.
The "All Night Upholstery Shop" was only open at night and had a lot of traffic, but something just seemed wrong. our neighbors started getting together with DART, COMBAT and the Kansas City Police Department to look into the situation.
After a shoot-out in the streets we decided we had enough and really started putting the pressure on. Within a few weeks the place was raided and the drug-dealing, car thieves were gone from our otherwise peaceful neighborhood.
