The Galveston County Sheriff's Department has now made an arrest. The area around San Leon and Bacliff used to be so nice but corruption, drugs and crime are taking its toll. Time for the citizens to demand the District Attorney's office start cleaning things up.

Or maybe request to be annexed by Texas City so they can have police protection.
