The officers saw Gale clinging to something that appeared to be heavy in the front area of his waistband. The officers became suspicious of Gale’s actions and mannerisms. The officers began to follow Gale.

At one point. the officers decided to engage him in conversation.

The officers stopped their unmarked car in the area of Grafton Street and Barclay Street. Gale immediately ran off as the plain clothes officers exited their car.
