Tipster M reports an apparent armed robbery Friday night near 11th and Thomas — and a surprising find during his smoke break. All information in the 11:30p incident is preliminary — we’re tracking down the official details.
Walked outside to have a smoke in the front yard, weird timing. 5 cop cars outside, black male suspect, age 19-21 (baby-face) already in handcuffs hunched over cop car. Wondering wtf was going on and saw a blackberry in my front yard, which you wouldn’t see from the street the screen light was still on where all the cops were searching w/ flashlights. I picked it up, and walked outside my yard onto my street, where cops were 4 feet away looking under my tree on the strip. I asked what they were looking for, and said they already found it, it was a gun stashed in my tree on the strip piece that goes between your house, sidewalk, and street. I then stated I just found a blackberry in my yard w/ the screen still on/backlight. Having been a blackberry user for 8 years in the past, thats typically set to last no more than 1min, so talk about odd timing for a smoke.
