Recently there has been increased panhandling at the corner of Sylvania and Talmadge - specifically in front of the B.P. Station. Additionally, the vagrants have also been frequenting the expressway exits near Kroger's on Monroe Street. The team panhandling these areas consists of a middle aged Hispanic male who has worked these two locations for over six months and a middle aged caucasian who will carry a sign reading "Army Vet" or "Homeless needing help" depending on his mood. As we are nearing the Holiday Season I would urge my fellow T.T.er's who see these panhandlers to perform the highest level of kindness for the neighborhood, city and vagrants by digging deap into your pockets.... to grab your cell phone to call the Toledo Police Non-Emergency number and report these scammers. The number is 419-245-3340. Expect to provide a location and description of the vagrants.
Merry Christmas to All!
