    I just got home and wondered what was going on around here with all the cops. Nothing on the news yet.

    We went driving around to see what we could see (sorry, Jiggers, burning gas again ;) …) saw a cop car at the US Bank in The Junction so guessing that was it.

    I went to a friends business a block away on California ave and she said cops came to her place and made sure everything was clear.

    i was out getting lunch when i saw the police cars zoom by. craziness. we’re lightly concerned here at artswest, just down the street from the usbank that was robbed. i hope they catch the robber soon.

    we are on 46th ave sw. crazy! they searched our yard with dogs and full SWAT regalia. no announcements or anything. scary to say the least. they just left and said all is safe. hoping we can trust the nose of the dogs. this is insane!

Sorry, comment time is over.
