White Rock

It seems a group of youth are now going around White Rock selling a cleaning product. I spoke with some neighbors on our street, and the one who had them at their door, noticed this morning that the gate to the back yard was open.

Hearing this, I checked our back gate, and it was also open. I am going to let the police know, but thought you all might want to let the citizens know to be aware of this activity. I checked on the product they were selling and it is a true product, the sales information says it benefits, “Inner City Youth.”
