Suspicious Activity???? Help
Okay GLPers I need your help. Today after dropping the kids at school I saw two different vehicles being driven by middle eastern men speeding through traffic at different times. The second vehicle really caught my attention because in the back of the truck were heavy army style plastic boxes. I'm an ex military spouse and i've seen these on the bases before but, I could totally be wrong. The truck with said boxes swerved in and out of traffic without signaling and then made an abrupt turn into a gated complex. Being the crazy woman I am, I followed and went in behind him. I got the address where he parked the truck and a good description of him. Young "middle eastern" looking man with a long shaggy black beard wearing a black hoodie and black pants. Parked outside the upper class home he pulled into was at least a $75k car. When he saw me coming back around he watched closely and stopped unloading the boxes so I couldn't get a pic in the complex as he unloaded. The whole thing just put my stomach in knots. Something just didn't sit right with his behavior.

I went to the local PD and reported it but they dismissed me saying his truck is registered locally. The guy who shot up SB yesterday was local. On the way out ran into the woman who heads disaster prep for the county and we got to talking. She said last night an urgent message went out with a video from LAPD on active shooters. She said the memo also said to take all reports as being real.

Here is the pic I took of the truck and boxes. I have more but this is the best one and I cropped out the persons license plate. Now I could be WAY off on this and it may be nothing more than a legit guy transporting some band equipment or super expensive photography equipment but my gut tells me differently.

Wanted to post for input. Thanks!

I did. They said the car is locally registered so it's probably nothing. Yesterdays attackers had locally registered cars. It's disturbing.

Big speakers in lock boxes? Guess it could be. I may be totally wrong but the behavior was odd of the guy and I know GLPers are the BEST out there at decoding stuff so I figured i'd post the pic for input. It just was "odd" to say the least.

If there were more citizens like yourself we'd be a safer nation.

If you are unarmed I would recommend creating more distance in the future but otherwise GREAT WORK!

I would report this incident up the chain if I did not get any response.

Start local, then move on to the FBI, Homeland Security and finally I'd just make the whole thing public via the 'net through multiple websites.

Email it to the FBI. If you get an email back that states, "This is not an auto-generated email," usually in bold red lettering... expect a phone call from your local FBI office. Trust me on this.

I did and I wasn't gonna tail him LOL since I had his license plate but this was within a few blocks of where I live and it just un-nerved me. I know it isn't an excuse. I texted my mom as I was following him and sent her the picture and his address too just in case. Stupid yes then again on the other hand if it saves someones life i'm all for it.

Thank you! In this day and age we ALL have a duty to be alert and watchful. As a nurse I am a mandated reporter and i've always taken that seriously. At first I felt bad for reporting someone who was innocent but there is a system in place and while it's flawed and broken when a bad guy is caught it is worth it all. Same is true in this instance. I'd much rather report it and find out he's in a rock band or something than have it be a missed sleeper cell.

You also stay safe and God bless <3

The boxes (2) in the back of the truck are pelican cases like you would find here ( [link to www.pelican-case.com] )which can be used for any number of things. Electronics mostly, but the foam inserts inside can be cut to fit anything, including firearms.

The third item in the truck is a plastic rolling cart, I know as we have them at work.
