The Arlington Towne Centre located at Copper Street and Interstate 20 has seen a strong increase in crime. Shops within the strip center have been burglarized and customers have been robbed at night. Twisted Vapors, an electronic cigarette shop, was broken into right before closing time. The man busted into the shop with a hammer and smashed the glass display cases grabbing products. The employee that was there chased him out of the store and called the police. Employees at Palm Beach Tan have also witness suspicious people lurking around the center. Customers leaving the tanning salon at night have been mugged in the stairwells causing Police to take action. The stairwells are closed off and the elevators are shut down a specific time every night. Police are currently doing what they can to decrease the crime in the center as fast as possible.
