    Heard this vehicle squealing thru Park Hall Elementary parking lot and coming to a stop at about 8pm the evening before it was found. sounded like it had a tire locked up on it… neighbor passed by as the driver got out. it was a tall black man and he was said to have been picked up at the scene by a Green Dodge truck… the truck came back the next day and was seen on camera scoping out the neighborhood…
