Vigilantism

The town first experienced this problem in early 2015, after a stray of robberies within the small community the police seemed powerless to stop these crimes from being carried out and a group known as "Blood Brothers" were seen taking matters into their own hands. The group soon started going through the streets at night in an effort to stop the stray of robberies and after a month or so they managed to apprehend the robbers which were later discovered as members of the Gang 77. The after effect of this also lead to the capture of their leader which was confirmed by the police in 2017 [3]
