No it was robbed 4 nights ago. A guy got the girl as she was taking out trash. Put a gun to her head and walked her back in the store. Put the gun to the heads of all 3 girls and demanded money. Started waving the gun around and he fired a shot in the store. It hit the walk in cooler. no one was injured. Not Safe anymore.

We need to be told about every robbery in Cahokia via the newspapers.

It is our right to be informed.

Not safe anymore? We ran a business there thirty years ago and it wasn't. We were robbed by every color (except asians) and gender. This happens everywhere and it is nothing new. Don't drama it up more than it is.

mmmmmm.... i miss classic k. burgers are always great. tacos are hit or miss, if you order too many, sometimes they get lazy and don't fill them enough. but still one of the best bets in cahokia!

The question should have been. "What business has not been robbed in Cahokia?" The people do not hear about all the robberies that have taken place.

Tiki is right! Cahokia has been going downhill for the past 30-40 years. I personally know of at least 40 people who left in the 70's because they did not want to raise a family there. My sympathy goes to you for living there and being too blind to see that you defintely were part of Cahokia's white trash era. Glad to see you have moved on. Peace.

I dont care where you live things are bound to change!!! What urks me is when you call Cahokia Police, they tend to ask your rank, name and SS#!!!! I am not the affending persons! Police should be obtaing pertenint information needed to arrest or detain the umsub committing the crime at the time. If I call them I am sure the system enables them to track the call. Why waste
assential time finding out who the caller is! There is adequate time to search that later. Do Not Make Citizens Feel they Have No recourse!!!
More would call if they were sure they can report crime without the perps knowing they called!!!!!!!!!!

Cahokia Police Department needs to respond to tax paying citizens more. If neighbors continually turn in reports of suspicious late nightr activity of a house in a usually quiet subdivision, do something about it! There's one house one street over from the police chief that has been repeatedly brought to their attention! Public drunkenness! Loud music at 1am when neighborsa who work are trying to sleep! Fights in the front yard! Unliscensed child care (and child abuse??) DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT...

Its ridiculous that we are left to fend for ourselves cause the cops are scared. Something is wrong w/ this picture.

Drug Use

Tenants who receive Section 8 benefits face eviction if they use illegal drugs. In 1988, the Anti-Drug Act was passed to help control crime at low-income housing rental properties. Because drug crimes are a violation of state and federal laws, the government will not allow those found guilty of such crimes to participate in subsidized housing programs. In addition, a whole household can face eviction even if only one of the tenants participates in drug-related activities, even if the others did not know about the drug use.

Eligibility


Section 8 benefits are only available to U.S. citizens or legal immigrants who are low-income individuals or families, elderly or disabled. The local Housing Authority office determines the income limits a household must have to qualify, which may vary by county, city and state. A Housing Authority representative will check your references to make sure an applicant's practices and habits are not detrimental to the rental property or other tenants. It is the responsibility of a Section 8 applicant to provide truthful information regarding her level of income, Social Security number and citizenship status.

What gets me is we have the current police chief living in our subdivision. This house wwas bought for an adult child by his mother. This man has walked around the subdivision with open containers of booze and the police know him. He has terrorized several neighbors. He has all kinds of traffic in and out of his house between midnight and 4am. Why do the police have to wait until something bad happens to a meighbor?? Let Code Enforcement do their job! Let the police protect us before this turns into PArkfield Terrace!

This has been the first time in thirty years that classic k has been robbed. I was the one who walked out the back door and had the gun put to my head. It was a tramatic experience but i feel much safer now that the owners of the store have taken the necessary precautions to make sure it doesnt happen again, new security cameras, more closers,no longer taking the trash out after dark and no more walking out the back door. It was new years eve and Shnucks was closed so it was the perfect opertunity for someone to rob the store. They knew what time we left to take the trash out.And as for the police they showed up quickly and there first priority was are safety and to calm us down. If it was for the cop who was first to show up on scene i would have been much more upset about the whole situation. He knew exactly how to calm all of us down and was extremely kind while questioning us.

In my opinion everything was handled perfectly.

There was a Walmart parking lot robbery on 12/31, in broad daylight. No weapon brandished, though.
