[ Important Note: This audio is NOT of the police chase I happened to catch Sunday 6/20 (the video of that is here). This audio is from a separate incident approximately 2 weeks prior to that.]
And yet MORE drama involving my fine Allentown neighborhood. I came across this chase as numerous BPD police units were chasing someone or at least on way to chasing someone the wrong way on Franklin Street. Occurred at 7:55-ish PM -- only about 30 minutes or so prior to this posting.
It's probably worth noting that this chase was not related to another chase earlier this morning (just after midnight) which also involved a crash -- although hearing the story it generally involved the same neighborhood.
From what I interpret in my time listening to the scanner, Buffalo Police has a fairly restrictive chase practice -- frequently breaking off in favor of catching up with suspects later whenever possible. So, the so-far mysterious chase through Allentown was likely based on something serious. We'll have to continue monitoring MSM for answers unless you know and tell.
