    The area around Potomac Mills is inundated with vagrants that camp in the woods. There are people begging for money at all the intersections around Prince William Parkway and Worth Avenue and parking lots. These people regularly steal from the mall and neighboring stores like the Wal-Mart and Home Depot.

      Yes, what’s happening, I think, is that many people from DC have been moving into Woodbridge, and the area is getting to be quite dangerous. The police need to move these people out of this area.
