I asked someone much more in the know about special communications than I about his opinion of this van pictured above. He threw out an answer, non-committal. I thought that was it. But then he poured on the research and got hold of me again. He could be wrong, but he said that it appears to be an FCC investigations van. Apparently, what they do is make their way to an area where there are suspect interferences with communications. Indeed. We’ve had really a lot of that in the area at high levels over the past couple of years. I reckon that there are lots of things going on behind the scenes but ready to explode into open court. So, if this is what it is, this utterly unmarked, entirely custom, way under the speed limit, with accompaniment van is entirely welcome. The more the merrier.
Meanwhile – and this is just hearsay – someone told me that they had seen another weird van around town, on main street, in fact, up at city hall, twice. That van I’m sure also has lots of custom things going on with it, as it belongs to the State Bureau of Investigation Crime Scene Investigations Unit. I’m not saying I know what the crime was – and I always regret any crime took place – but if the crime being investigated is what I think it is, I’d say that the two vans are working in tandem.
Weirdly, just a fun fact on the side, all of a sudden the local sheriff’s election has been moved up from November 2022 to just about six weeks from now.
