Easy freeway access. Prepare for more crime off the new Drexel exit as well. Does the store have video?

I so agree with "MustangSally" I live on Drexel...good way for criminals to check out your driveway etc. This just sucks that you can never ever relax, always have to be aware of what is going on around you. Thank God no one was hurt or killed.

Please enlighten me on these Obama policies that will increase crime, and please be specific.
