Location 3: Umatilla, Oregon
Comments: Prison cells spotted. I was traveling to Seattle from Spokan [Washington]. I was in the canyon just west of Vantage, WA. I came upon a truck going rather slowly up the hill. So I passed the truck. As I passed the truck I got a good look at what he was carrying. It was a concrete box about 27 x 12. I cold see from my side two windows with bars.
At the top of the hill there is a rest stop so I waited for him hoping he would pull in, he did. I was able to talk with the driver. I asked him what he was hauling and he told me it was a prison cell. I then asked him where he was going to deliver the cell to. The only thing he told me was he was heading to Umatilla, Oregon.
I did not have a camera with me or I would have taken pictures. I contacted M.O.M. and told my story to them. I almost forgot the cells are being mfg. in Cashmere, Wa. We now have pictures of cells leaving the contractors yard.
