    Lots of meth heads are just local inbreds , Watch for jittery behavior , with paranoia and be aware of any chemical smells ( and do not investigate them- just tip off police ) cooking meth puts a lot of toxins out .


    You think its bad there, Relocate down south, the skook is a beautiful place. You can visit historic Pottsville, visit yuengling brewery, eat custom cheese sandwiches while posting on facebook about high school sports all day. There is also a train station without a real train available for tours. Then you could take the scenic route 54 corridor tour through the drug invested, fire trapping row home loving towns of Tamaqua, Mahanoy city, Shenandoah, Girardville and Ashland ending with a tour of Centralia. The Shenandoah suburbs of william penn and lost creek are the most posh. Just stay away from frackville street roamers can be strange.

        Those cheese sammys are high tech and pricey, ill get my tux ready for my next visit to downtown pottsville, but first I will need to get a smart phone to park and download the parking app. This is like silicon valley here now. millennials are flocking here.

      Every time I drive through Frackville I blast Wonderwall by Oasis and think about next high school football season

      So there’s no chance whatsoever that these are “native” meth heads? LOL Let’s not forget all these “nice little towns” have always had their drunks…. nice indeed….. *eyeroll*

      Oh my gosh! I just googled it and there are headlines about meth moving from RURAL to urban areas! LMAO

        She was a local, as far as i know she has been in Jersey Shore all her life so this was not someone who came from philly or somewhere else to ruin our little town. She was “native”

        tremont, hegins, tower city – found to be great places by urban drug rings. Cheap structures for stash houses, manufacturing, and hideouts. Small time, uneducated, lazy local cops are too incompetent to detect operators. System of distribution to and from cities.

      Having been born and raised in Jersey Shore in the 70s and 80s, this type activity was unheard of, let alone all the other crime that is taking place. From Lock Haven to Williamsport, it was safe and you felt secure. Then came the state sponsored mad rush of ‘immigration’ in the 90s into the Williamsport area from Philly and other urban areas, and everything started going to sh!t.

      Meth doesn’t come from the city. It’s homegrown from years of decline and people putting their heads in the sand.
      Cops are too busy putting people in dire circumstances over petty stuff, that it escalates to making an income and finding a release any way you can.
      We have our own oppressive society of “law and order” to thank for this disorder. Not the violence from Philly.
