    Mack Kilpatrick

    Multiple in Trussville for sure. Mostly high school kids who are in the beginning stages of getting bad off on pills & robbing cars or their parents wallets to support their growing habits. Hell even breaking into houses from time to time. But holding up a McDonald’s in the location that it’s in and being a Trussville resident knowing the area, I know that is a VERY frequently passed area for the swarms of police who occupy Trussville. With that said. It would be a bold move for a Trussville resident to do so. But a crime of that caliber usually is found in the neighboring city of Centerpoint.

    So is Trussville the new Tarrant/Center Point?

  48. 84

    Brian Wells

    There needs to be a line drawn. Roebuck, Huffman and center point all used to be good places. Now, not so much. Push it back the other direction.

    Ashley L. Hill and Nathan’s going to have to move to night shift now that schools starting back! I’m going to make sure he parks close by!

    Ashley L. Hill, Nathan was at the store telling Mike about his new availability while this happened!!! He saw the cops & fire truck on his way home!

    Jeff Jessen

    CP and Trussville are nothing alike. CP wasn’t a city for years while it was growing. Apartment complexes were built all over the place and they eventually got run down and cheap. The residents of CP had no say-so about the community since there was no city government. Trussville is the exact opposite. Virtually no apartments in the city limits and complete control of their city thru the city government.

    Amy Williams the one in Tuscaloosa that happened this morning was a guy waiting for someone to come out with the deposit to go to the bank. That one has to be an inside job. Hope they catch them too

    Why you tag me? I didn’t do it. BTW, want any fries? I have extra

  56. 95

    Paul Broadley

    It doesn’t matter that there’s not apartment complexes going up – there will be, give it a little time. You say “complete control” not so much when it comes to crime. I remember Center Point 25 years ago and Trussville will be there in less than 10 years.

  57. 96

    Sandy King Pilkington

    I was born and raised in Trussville. Haven’t lived there for few years. Went to Gas Station close to McDonald’s ever in my life I felt scare on that side of town. I really feel like Trussville going to get just like Center Point Huffman,Robuck

    You guys act like crime doesn’t happen everywhere. Jesus, one armed robbery and were Center Point

    You know this happens in Mountain Brook, right??? Do your research. Better yet, go live in a bad area and get back to all of us how it compares

  64. 103

    What?? Trussvillle is immune from crime!

  65. 104

    Kelli Penque

    By this logic, Mountain Brook is the next Center Point

    Stephanie Cannon

    About a year ago I was in that McDonald’s parking lot (using their wifi lol), and a group of teenagers started arguing inside the play area. Then a guy held a girl up to the side by her neck and was punching her in the face! Y’all, nobody intervened! I called 911 and by the time the cops got there, the guy took off. I think it’s a dangerous place because it’s so secluded.

    Lacey Michelle Jones are you ok?not sure if this is the 1 you were transferred to or not

  70. 112

    Kelli Penque

    I’ve grown up in Trussville for 24 years bud. Just because I recently moved to Vestavia to be closer to work doesn’t mean my opinion is irrelevant. But thank you for stalking my Facebook. I’ve lived in the same house in Trussville for 23 out of my 24 years, and if anything it’s grown to be better than what it was.

    Stephanie Perkins Owens

    Just moved back home after 20yrs of living out of state and I agree. Trussville is heading to the same thing as Center Point and Pinson. The masses are coming in and the destroying everything. Seen it happen in Conyers, Ga and PCB.

    David Graves , if you read the crime stats, you may be correct!

    Ommmggg, that is awful!! Teenagers are so much worse now than they were in our day! We did mischievous stuff but NOTHING like today’s teens!

  76. 118

    David Echols

    Because so many places now ban guns people are “forced” to leave them in their cars, which get broken in to and the guns get stolen and the criminals rob people using the easily available guns. (Forced is in quotations because unless it’s a courthouse, airport or government building I’m wearing mine and nobody will know it unless I need to use it)

    wow. 7:30 – its not even dark yet. Ok. as far as the people who always chime in about when they used to live in the area and why they moved to a remote suburban island where there is no crime – what response are they looking for? If you dont live here anymore – why are you still following the page?

  81. 123

    Gwendolyn Wardlow

    Are they secretly Real estate agents and are recruiting for new neighbors? Genuinely curious as to what their intent could be.

    Fyi this was an individual robbed, not McDonald’s. However there had been a string of the actual McDonald locations being robbed all around Birmingham a couple of months ago. The police around the city and suburban areas all knew and worked together. This is not just from Centerpoint. We’ve had criminals from all areas of Birmingham go to more influential areas to rob. It makes sense. I don’t think they’re going to go to lower income areas of Birmingham to rob. Be aware of your surroundings and pay attention at all times. Trust no one you don’t know!

    People CRIME IS EVERY WHERE! Stop saying such and such city is moving into Trussville. You people are blind if you don’t see that this is happening every where now days! Just because we live in an “upper class” city doesn’t mean we are secluded from everything. You should expect that after all the new development popping up every where!

    Trussville PD won’t do anything about it anyway. We had our vehicle broken into at Olive Gardner and a $500 give cars stolen. We received notification when it was spent at Bessemer Walmart. They had video of the girl using it, they looked for her for a couple days and then just quit talking to us or returning calls about our case. Don’t put much faith in the Trussville PD solving this one.

    Trussville where the ppl who are too poor to live in mt.brook and the ppl who are too to rich to live in the ghetto collide. Forming the perfect storm of absolute shit. I hate trussville. It’s traffic is just as bad as 280 and ppl are worse
