    Update: Jersey City Police notified HPD that they picked a bald man, wearing a curly wig, and a woman’s dress. However, no confirmation whether this was the suspect in question.

    The source of the smoke at 5th and Wash is believed to have possibly been fireworks in the hallway of the building, but no working fire was discovered.

    A bald guy wearing a curly hair wig and wearing a dress is just as dangerous a guy with a gun, to the lions….

    Thank you Hoboken 411 for telling me what the cops refused to tell me. This “investigation” is going on right outside my house. I’ll sleep well knowing there is a drag queen with a gun roaming around my neighborhood. Makes me think of a song…
    ” A Drag Queen is a person in my neighborhood, in my Neighborhood, In my Neighborhood, A Drag Queen is a person in my neighborhood, and he carries a pink loaded gun”.

        Have you experienced Taxi’s wrath first hand. I now know who you guys are talking about. I made Taxi cry once. He was sleeping in the hallway of my building one morning and startled me. I yelled at him to get out and I swear I saw tears in his eyes.

    By far the craziest part of the story is that he was wearing a black hoodie.

    I have an update… I just saw the police scoop up what looks like a black wig in front of Mola Iron Works (on Paterson Ave). Now we just have a trannie in a dress and a black hoodie.

    hmmmm…. a 6 foot tall, white male, with curly hair, wearing turqoise shorts and flip flops…this describes about 95% of hoboken’s male population. In other words, there’s a crazy yuppie with a handgun running around Hoboken… his portfolio must’ve taken a dive.
