PANDHANDLERS TARGET RURAL INTERSECTIONS

(Economy, IN)--There’s nothing unusual about seeing panhandlers in Richmond nowadays.  Now, residents in some rural areas have begun to complain about the same problem.  One place where it’s occurring is at the intersection of U.S. 35 and State Road 1 just west of Economy.  Residents there claim a man is dropped off every day, stands at the intersection for hours asking for money, and is then picked up.  Wayne County Sheriff Jeff Cappa said there’s nothing illegal about panhandling in rural areas as long as traffic is not disrupted.
