This email was forwarded to my mom from a friend. Its from the local RCMP, outlining some new tactics that robbers and gang members are using to target people driving along deserted highways:
Just a heads up. Stay safe out there!Passed along by Police Department & Courthouse
Several things to be aware of this year...as gangs and robbers are now plotting different ways to get a person to "stop" their
vehicle. Please send to your friends.
1) There is a gang initiation reported by the local police department that gangs are placing a car seat by the road..with a fake baby in it.... waiting for a woman, of course, to stop and check on the baby...
Note that the location of this car seat will usually be beside a wooded or grassy (field) area ...and the person - woman - will be dragged into the woods- beaten and raped- usuallyleft for dead. DO NOT STOP. DIAL 9-1-1 AND INFORM THEM.....
2) IF YOU ARE DRIVING AT NIGHT AND EGGS ARE THROWN AT YOUR WINDSHIELD.
DO NOT OPERATE THE WIPER AND SPRAY ANY WATER BECAUSE EGGS MIXED WITH WATER BECOME MILKY AND BLOCK YOUR VISION UP TO 92.5% SO YOU ARE FORCED TO STOP BESIDE THE ROAD AND BECOME A VICTIM OF ROBBERS. THIS IS A NEW TECHNIQUE USED BY ROBBERS.
