Suspicious Vehicle Today, Our Road, 3/30/10, approx. 2:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Hello from B R, 00000 Our Road
My son was coming home from school today and saw a red honda accord with chrome rims pulling into several driveways, even going up to one house and knocking on the door but no one came out. After he saw them pull into 3 or 4 driveways, he called me to ask who to report suspicious activity to. So I called 911 for him while he waited at the end of our driveway, they pulled into the driveway across the street so he asked them if he could help them. A young thin man, and a young woman said they were looking for a house to pick up a friend at but didn’t have a name nor did they know where the house was. The girl said they would looking for a brown house with a red barn. He pointed to L H's house and told them the tweeker's house is over there. This comment made them nervous so they just sat in their car and never went to H's. After a few minutes, they chose to head back to town since my son was still watching them. Then 2 sheriffs show up, one sheriff to look for the car and one to talk to my son. Sheriff #2 parked down the road a little ways. As Sheriff #1 was talking to him, the red car drives by again he tells the sheriff and sheriff #2 pulls the car over. The Sheriff said they had no stolen property and found nothing to arrest the couple for but believe they were up to no good and thanked him for reporting the suspicious activity.
I received a phone call today. My shotgun had been cleaned and repaired.
It’s a Sears Ted Williams Model 75 20 gauge shotgun, made by High Standard in 1968. It’s somewhat of a collector item these days and it’s loaded with #6.
