ALBANY, GA (WALB) - As police continue to fight a steady flow of gang activity in Albany they're noticing graffiti on public buildings.
This weekend, police discovered a Crips sign spray painted on an east Albany building. WALB News Ten's Tayleigh Davis spoke to customers who don't want to see signs of gang activity in their neighborhoods.
Joanne Hardy had not seen the gang graffiti on side of the CVS building in Radium Crossings Shopping Center. Police discovered it Saturday morning around 10:15. She and other shoppers don't want to see this anywhere close to home.
" I have to keep my doors and windows locked and It's really bad, said Albany resident Floree Mitchell. "Police should steer more towards the gangs instead of tickets."
Mitchell brings her grandchildren to the shopping center at least once a week. She said she had to move her daughter out of public school because gang members tried to initiate her.
"I think it's really bad and people should become more involved and stand up if they know somebody in a gang," Mitchell said.
Both Mitchell and Hardy have seen an increase in crime over the past several years especially when it involves kids.
"I guess the only thing you can do is pray and keep your doors locked," Mitchell added.
People in the area will continue to rely on the gang task force to help cut down on threats people see in our community. The gang task force continues to investigate the culprits behind the gang graffiti.
