MODESTO (CBS13) – Residents in a Modesto neighborhood are so concerned about crime they may bring in armed security guards.

The residents are members of the College Area Neighborhood Alliance.

“I don’t know the feeling on an armed patrol.  That may becoming a little bit drastic,” said neighbor Dave Jones. “I don’t feel the need for it yet.”

 Residents must first approve the plan to bring in armed security guards and at least 500 residents will have to pay $25 a month for the patrol.
