Have been asking for couple years that either Gazette or Patch do some research on the # of crimes on Lost Knife...a statistical report for at least past 10 years (though it has been a notorious location for crime even farther back than that!) Even tried to get a TV station to do some research and report. And County Council & City of Gaithersburg as well never seemed to want to respond. So I guess it is at least about time that you acknowledged that fact at least in your title of this site. Hummm!

And, by the way, that is not a spike!!!! That is and has been the norm for Lost Knife for decades. Hasn't anyone ever noticed that it is in the Gazette Police Blog and the PATCH basically 'every week'! Rhetorical!
