Tony Vega has been in business in South Omaha for more than a decade and he's never seen a pattern of crime like this. It has prompted him to suggest a measure that might not sit well with some South Omahans.
"During the day this is a great place, but at night this turns into a dangerous place," said Vega. His idea is to work with the South Omaha Business Association, The Latino/Hispanic Chamber and Omaha Police to put in a series of cameras and lights at three major intersections.
"We should put them at 24th & L, 24th & O and 24th & Q," suggests Vega.
His Plaza Latina store has been burglarized three times in the last two months and there was a shooting outside of his store that left two broken windows that cost more than $700 to replace.
