Ok, does anybody know any vehicles described they could have got away in? Just wondering Bcz of a very suspicious vehicle we saw Sunday afternoon around. I don’t want to say here but I’d like to report it but not sure anyone would even listen much less record it I always think certain people looking like they just robbed a bank shouldn’t be on our road hunkering down with camp hoodie cinched down barely able to see out to drive.
