ARCO GAS Selling Crack Pipes in Watts

by imc repost Thursday, Jan. 13, 2011 at 11:33 PM

This was mailed to info@la.indymedia.org. It's worth reposting, so here it is. An ARCO gas station is caught selling crack pipes near Samuel Gompers Middle School.

ReelUrbanNews Crack Pipes At Arco Gas & Dr ARCO CRACK PIPE's 347

The ARCO gas station at the intersection of Main Street and Imperial Highway is in the heart of Watts, a high crime, drug infested community in South Central Los Angeles that not only sells gasoline to their predominantly African American and Hispanic customers, but crack pipes and other drug paraphernalia as well. After observing crack pipes and mini scales prominently displayed for sale in the walk-up service window of the ARCO 105 station, ReelUrbanNews.com contacted and emailed letters to British Petroleum/ARCO and SC Fuels, of Orange, California expressing our concern.

On December 8, 2010, a representative from SC Fuels contacted ReelUrbanNews.com and assured us that all drug paraphernalia had been removed from the walk-up gas station windows and that ARCO 105 gas station was no longer selling crack pipes. Since our phone conversation with SC Fuels, ReelUrbanNews.com has been able to purchase on two separate occasions crack pipes and other drug paraphernalia from the ARCO 105 gas station. The ARCO 105 gas station is directly to the rear of the Samuel Gompers Middle School campus, one of Los Angeles Unified School District’s most academically challenged schools.

Follow our investigation and watch as ReelUrbanNews.com confronts the ARCO 105 gas station attendant during the sale of a crack pipe to one of our associates.

Watch ReelUrbanNews.com exclusive HD video of crack pipes being sold at ARCO.
