    That's right! CLOSE THE BORDER!! Oh wait, these people are white? Darn! Are you sure? But I've read on here that illegals are to blame for all the crime in this area. LOL! ....dumb people would be too funny if they weren't so dangerous.

    Everybody complaining about Galt PD...just be glad they did what they were supposed to do this time.From the article: "Though some components appeared to have already been used in a drug lab, it did not appear that the home itself had housed the lab..."But this would not preclude the occupants of that apartment from possibly trying to start their own "meth" lab...which would have been a horror waiting to happen.

    Galt police are mandated to line the city coffers by issuing parking tickets on flea market days. Make sure your tires are not even 1" on the rolled curbs or they will ticket you for "parking on the sidewalk". Crime in Galt will always take a back seat to revenue garning traffic citations.

    I see it as Galt Police are to busy keeping the Twin Cities areas safe and not paying attention to the actual downtown area of Galt. My family lives in those newer houses off of Twin Cities and I always see galt police there but when I go to downtown I never see a cop, unless its flea market day. I am sure that most of the police in Galt have houses in the Twin Cities area, could that be why they patrol there so much? Maybe it should be its own town, the town of Twin Cites and the town of Galt? Like Laguna and Elk Grove.

    Jamie, don't apologize. They were probably too busy at the flea market looking for people selling counterfeit purses or unlicensed NFL gear. You know, more important things.

    ok i guess that statement was rude toward Galt police, but they seem to have thier hands tied when it comes t0 what to do with drug dealing in Galt.

    It is about time. Galt police have had trouble with those apts. for a long time. We need a new courthouse in Galt so that all these so called petty drug dealers can go to court and get some type of punishment rather than the look the other way the Galt police usually do.
