I know this is an old post but I would like to add that Tulia's crime map is very off. I know a business owner in Santa Ana...

It is the second or third poorest city on Orange County.

I may think I know the answer, but I am a qualified Realtor, not a lawyer or law enforcement person. Call the local police and discuss this with them. They can help you with the answer and a qualified Realtor can help you with your real estate needs.
