Friday, November 1, 2013

A female resident of Huff Place said she looked out and saw a man in her yard about to drive away with her older model Ford F-150.

She then noticed that her gray 1988 Olds 88 was missing from her yard.

Police checked out the situation and were told by Paul Motley that Bilal Shabazz told him the vehicles could be towed for scrap. He said Shabazz had been with him earlier in the day, but no longer was.

He said the Olds 88 had already been crushed by Bare Metals on South Market Street.

It was arranged that Bare Metals would pay the owner for the demolished Olds 88.
