I wonder why did they mention Bounds, in the 2500 block of Bristol Pike when there are several other stores in the strip located right on 2600, where the aressts were made?

Hey Matthew: I mentioned Bounds because it is a landmark I associate with the area. I have since updated the story to include Daley's because that is more accurately where the incident happened. Thanks.

Thanks Joe. I guess I say that since I seem to recall a drug incident of the past sveral years in another store located in the strip of 2600 bristol Pike? I am wondering if the same store is connected with this?

I haven't heard about this, but I'll look into it. Thanks.
