Subject: Suspicious VehicleNews Team:During our recent safety meetings, we asked you to be aware of suspicious vehicles around our trucks. ABC7 Photographer Lorne Morrison experienced a situation on Wednesday that we wanted to share with you.Lorne stopped at the Trader Joe’s in San Francisco at 19th and Winston near SF State. He was on his way home at about 4:45pm. When he came out of the store he saw a Gray Porsche Cayenne SUV pulled up next to the ABC7 van. The car had damage to the left front fender. Two men got out of the Porsche. One went up to the driver side window of the van and was looking inside. Lorne said the other man seemed to be acting as a lookout. One man was driving and stayed in the car.As Lorne approached the van, he said “hey, yo” to the men. One of them asked if this was Lorne’s parking space. Lorne said yes. They quickly got in the Porsche and drove away. Lorne wasn’t able to get a license plate.This is a good example of being aware of a suspicious car and people. We wanted to share this information in case you are in this area and notice the same vehicle.Please see me if you have questions. And thanks to Lorne for sharing the information.Tracey

*The following memo was obtained through a local broadcast source --a concerned broadcast source.
What's wrong with this picture? Read the memo. Is there something glaringly wrong you read right away? Why is the KGO guy approaching the van in the first place? Dangerous don't you think? Yet the tone of the memo suggests Ms. Watkowski is fine with it.
"Lorne wasn't able to get a license plate?" How about Lorne should have stayed clear and called the police. End of story.
This is truly bizarre.
