Email Hoax Concerns Citizens  

 

Huntsville, Alabama (June 11, 2010)  The Huntsville Police Department is aware of a recent email being widely circulated that describes unlawful gang activity 
occurring in area parking lots.  The email specifically states that the Huntsville Medical Mall and Madison Square Mall are hot spots right now for gang related activity.
The email explains that gang members are throwing things at cars in hopes that the individual will stop and get out of their car to see what just happened, 
and it's at that time that they mug, rob, or assault the individual.  The Department has received several inquiries regarding this email.  
 
The Huntsville Police Department wants to assure the public that no such gang activity has been reported and that the email is a hoax.
