Everyone talks about how West Asheville is the up-and-coming place to live. The houses go on the market for a day before they are sold. Many families and young adults walk the streets.
My husband and I are one of the many enjoying our time in West Asheville with all it has to offer. I’m seven months pregnant and [in] walkable distance to Carrier Park. Everything is great. Or so we thought.
In the last month, there have been 10 robberies on or around our street, with thousands of stolen goods. The thieves are caught then released less then a week later. Our house got hit hard. My husband came home, and the robbers were still in the house. We got fingerprints from a window. They live two blocks from us, and nothing has been done.
I have been left pregnant, sad and violated in my home. A few other neighbors who have been robbed a month ago have already moved out so more victims can move into that home. We no longer want to live in West Asheville. For the residents of this area, be aware and take extra precautions.
