Emergency yard sale

Atmore police officers question the driver of a U-Haul truck who set up an impromptu yard sale along Martin Luther King Drive last Wednesday, December 6. The man placed a hand-lettered “yard sale” sign beside the truck and opened its cargo section. He told police he “ran out of gas, had only two dollars to his name and was trying to sell some of his belongings to raise gas money” so he could continue his trip. The officers directed traffic around the truck until the man could put his property inside and move it, then resumed patrol.
