Pray that his arrest will be the stimulus for him to get off drugs and this bad life style. Pray that our police will see the importance of staying close to God . Prayers for those afflicted with drug dependence
Good job that even this amount was not passed on. Pray this person has the will and strength to get help. Bad stuff.
Now if the DA will just keep them in jail and not release them again in a few days that would be awesome. Our city needs to be cleaned up.
Good job VPD!! Trying to keep the streets clean 🚓🙏🏻💙💙
Thank you for cleaning up our town VPD 🤩
Great job VPD!

Good job pd
