Albertville police on the lookout for buses carrying illegal immigrants

Seeing a bus driving down the highway doesn’t usually draw attention. But when Albertville Police Chief Doug Pollard saw a large bus in a residential area, he became suspicious Friday afternoon.

“We got information a couple of weeks ago that there would be a bus coming into town to bring some illegal immigrants and possibly illegal drugs as well,” Pollard said.

    it probably was a bus load of hispanics coming here for a better life at the expense of tax paying and taxed to death citizens of alabama.

    I thought i seen a suspicious bus full of what seemed to be immigrants but it was on Sunday. I am guessing it was a church bus full of cannibus smoking religious fanatics that would warrant a persons patdown search and drug dog search if pulled over.
