Thomas O'Shea, a lifelong Toledo resident, says crime is getting out of hand in his Willys Park neighborhood.
"Everything from menacing, breaking and entering, robberies, gun toting kids, we have some drug deals going down right in front of our homes," Mr. O'Shea said.
O'Shea is encouraging people to get involved with their neighborhood block watch group. "The police have much to do as it is," he said. I'd suggest all the neighbors join a block watch and keep their eyes open and communicate using their cell phones and online."
A spokesman for the Toledo Police Department says there is no gang presence in Willys Park.
