Southeast Houston businesses close early to stop teen crime

Posted on October 12th, 2010 No Comments

Recently, several business in a southeast Houston neighborhood have been forced to close early due to teen crime.  Business owners near Scott and Elgin say that closing before schools let out is their only option to avoid being the victims of juvenile crime and to hopefully prevent more teen crimes from occurring.

One Wendy’s employee stated, “They would throw stuff in the dining room, you know, just trash the whole place around”.  A nearby cell phone store manager told reporters, “When school first opened up, they had five, six fights a day, back-to-back”.

Several business told school officials that their bathrooms had been destroyed and some even had windows broken due to teen crime after school ended.    Sgt. Bobby Hebert of Pct. 7 Constable’s Office stated, “The students were creating disturbances, harassing the customers as well as the employees.  We’re out here to address that problem”.

If you or someone you know has been charged with a juvenile crime, contact the Houston juvenile crime attorneys of Johnson, Johnson & Baer P.C. at 713-523-0404 to learn more about your rights.
