    At 6’4″ he shouldn’t be too tough to track down. He’ll be the guy selling hand rolled smokes.

    I guess he said he’s not leaving emptyhanded. “Gimme some cigs instead then”

    I have noted it is rare to see police officers parked for a few minutes from time to time outside of business establishments, in particular near closing times in the eastern and western ends of the Island…but no doubt Front Street will have them every evening.
