The crime in Theresa isn't very high but there is still some illegal things going on that the police don't really know about but everyone else does. There is always this one guy in this car that everyone knows him for selling prescribed medication to others. There are also a lot of dealing drugs in Theresa i actually witnessed on and i didn't even mean to because they just met up behind me and did the deal.
The area has grown a lot because of a military base nearby and has cushioned us from the recession.
