Manchester Police/Fire: 'Suspicious' driver eludes police

Manchester Police/Fire:

MANCHESTER — Police responded to a report of alleged “suspicious activity” in the area of School and Mill Streets Monday around 3:30 p.m.

According to police, a man reported that the driver of a pickup truck may have been impaired, saying that the driver exhibited strange speech patterns when talking to the reporting party.

Police, however, could not find a truck matching the description when they reached the scene.
