I also noticed some activity that night.I work the door Wednesday's at a bar DT. I noticed some 'out of the ordinary' police activity last night (Wed. around 10-11pm)
An unmarked car stopped in a right of way lane on Orange, near Wall St. Three officers were standing around a car, two of them had note/citation pads, they looked like they were handing out seat belt tickets, making people role down their windows and shining their lights in their cars. Then an unmarked truck pulled up, in the only other available driving lane. Two more officers got out with flash lights and started walking up to cars. They made a few people role their windows down but waved them on, until they got to a lavender/pearl F-body camaro on 20's a few cars behind the truck. They made the driver get out with his hand up, then they searched everything including the trunk. It was a very thorough search involving at least 6 foot-soldiers and a few more that rode up on cannondale bikes.
They handed him his keys and let him drive away after about 25-30minutes of poking and prodding. The makeshift-checkpoint, and 10 police officers disappeared shortly after.
BTW that's crazy what happened. I hope something good comes out of this.
