Obviously if you be Nad one occurrence you be got a the assistant operations manager at fashion Park Dale Twycross who Heads Security and maintenance said the parents Don t want to take care of their children they bring them Here and drop them off. They the children run around and do malicious i a Tevar a target we have a Glass elevator and this seems to attract a lot of the said mrs. Betty Gerace. The head of Security at Robinson s.
