Flashing lights spotted all over town; what gives?

Lights & Sirens received two inquiries today regarding police activity in separate parts of town Wednesday.

The first came from reader Jodi Kroenert, who e-mailed this query to L&S this morning:

I live in the area of East Street and last night there was a lot of

police activity. It seemed that they had the area blocked off and were on

foot looking around. Can you tell me what happened?

Your faithful correspondents here at Lights & Sirens put the question to Tacoma police spokesman Mark Fulghum.

Fulghum reports that sheriff’s deputies and Tacoma police officers converged on the area in search of people seen inside a stolen car ditched there. No reports of arrests.

The second inquiry came from TNT photographer Bruce Kellman, who spotted a group of motorcycle cops downtown about 1:30 p.m. yesterday. Kellman said it looked like the officers were escorting someone important near the County-City Building.

Again, we asked Fulghum.

He said it most likely was a group of motorcycle officers practicing escort duty, probably for the upcoming Daffodil Parade.

So there you go.
