Prostitution, gangs and stabbings at Chase Heritage Apts? I don't believe that... I visit a friend there and never see such things. Is it the hispanics only? Btw, what's up with the blatant car auctions now going on in Sterling Shopping Plaza parking lot every Saturday and Sunday afternoon? Right in front of the CVS! I couldn't believe it... Don't they need a permit to hold these? They are truly taking over this once beautiful little community... What a shame!

The gangs make their money through prostitution and drugs...the prostitution is not as obvious as what you might see say on the streets of DC but it is there. The prominent gangs are MS-13 and 18th Street so yes it is mainly hispanics.

I live just blocks from the Sterling Park Mall and I have not seen these auctions...I'll have to watch for that.

response to leaving soon... agree completely... i inspected the TH/Condo community direct behind Chase last week and passed the home of the man killed when a bullet entered his residence obviously shot by a gang member.

Yes - I'm sure the Christmas tree guy isn't going to be too happy this year as they hold their auctions right where he sells his trees. It's going to scare off his customers. Maybe they'll move to another part of the parking lot.

Actually those were wannabe gang members, children really (ages 11-16). They were trying to prove themselves because they were not accepted into the gang...not that it makes the situation any better. The guy did survive though.
