Yesterday I went inside a CVS pharmacy (corner of Kendall & University) around 7pm. After spending a bit of time inside, came out to be greeted by 3 police cars and a police woman asking me about my fashion choice (for inspiration?), as they had a report of an “escaped convict”. After concluding I was not suspicious, she wished me a good evening. Everyone stayed cool, no guns drawn, and seemed amused.
Maybe the person who created the report, thought the person I was with was held hostage? That person probably watches too much TV. I wonder if the police contacted the prison system to know if there was a break before dispatching units.
How did that 911 call go?… “You say there is an escaped convict, what is he doing?” … “He is shopping, maybe has an accomplice, seems suspicious”.
