This morning at approximately 8:30am, Stanford police were advised of a man sitting in a van in the Maples parking lot who appeared to be loading a magazine into what the witness thought was a handgun. Police responded to the area immediately and were unable to locate anyone matching the description of the person or the associated vehicle.
The reporting party described the person with the possible weapon as an adult male, unknown race, wearing a beige beanie hat. The person was sitting in a white service type van that had blue lettering on it. The word "People" might have been the word in blue print on the van.
