TAMPA, Fla.- The Tampa Bay area Guardian Angels were in Seminole Heights on Friday night. They walked nearly 600 miles in the past 2 months. On Friday, they added more miles.
The Guardian Angels are a non-profit group. They were founded in New York in 1979 conducting hundreds of safety patrols throughout the United States, according to its website.
They have chapters in more than 130 cities including in the Tampa Bay area.
The group said they will add the Seminole Heights neighborhood to its weekly patrols.
"Once we come into an area, we just don't abandon it," said Ron Smith, a Guardian Angel.
The group walked the streets of Seminole Heights ever since the first murder in October. They were out patrolling nearly every day. Police caught the suspected killer in the Seminole Heights murders on Tuesday, but the group says patrols will continue.
