Subject: [MPD-5D] West Eckington: Van blocking alley
This morning, I saw a white "Astro" van, (VA tags) blocking the alley between Quincy Place and Q St NE. It was on the Lincoln Road end.
One wheel was off. Reportedly it has been in the alley a few days. I
suspect it was pushed to its current location.
The van contains paint, buckets like spackle comes in, a ladder, etc.
It has a plastic barrier (the kind light and air can get through)
between the passenger and cargo area.
- The van in West Eckington (never heard of such a term, but I like it) is gone now. It was removed on Sunday. It was a white van that was being chased by police referred to in these two Friday evening tweets by imgoph:"car nearly plowed over people exiting north entrance to NY ave station, then blew through FL ave and NY ave light. MPD in pursuit"According to my houseguest who heard it and went outside to look, the van flew down the alley behind our house, chased by an MPD cruiser, riding on a bare wheel rim, making a horrible noise. At the end of the alley, the driver bailed and ran on foot. One of the two cops in the cruiser got out and chased him. Hope he was caught. Would love to hear.The attached photos show van and the amazing wear on the wheel rim.J.T. Engelhardt
