This morning at about 11 AM a call went out for Raleigh Fire Department Engine 22 to respond to the Sheetz on Thornton Road, near where we had the overturned cement truck yesterday.
Apparently someone left a package of bottles or vials that are used for medical collection. Allegedly a Sheetz employee found these by the pumps and tossed at least one into the dumpster, where it broke, and then they thought about calling the authorities.
What we can tell you for certain is that gas at Sheetz was $3.39 this morning and there was a massive response by police, EMS, and the fire department. Oh yes, it looks like all they need to do a live shot these days is a little box attached to the camera.
While store customers were trapped inside, the media secured behind the yellow tape, and the emergency responders collected around the dumpster; life went on.
What appeared to be yet another Raleigh PD detective heads toward the hazardous location where it looks like a Sheetz employee is stuck standing their with their hands on hips.
