AIBU - sounds like I'm being nosey but WTAF is going on.

Live in a street, detached house but houses close together, new estate.

Last night, around 12 uniformed Police & 2 plain clothes arrive NEXT door. Outside for about 30mins no police cars/vans just a lot of radioing/phone usage.

Half the police then go round the back of said neighbours house into their garden.

Nothing, no drama in the street, no one taken out the house etc. Hour later all police disappear.

I'm just hanging around in my house now & 3 marked police vans arrive again, all get out, try and gain entry again to next door.

A. I'm a bit of a "hate this sort of thing going on outside my house etc as the police vans parked outside MY house (great!!!)

B. Jesus what is going on to warrant so many police?

C. Fuck sake!

D. Where the hell ARE my neighbours?

E. This will out me (hopefully not) but ZZ lister lives there

F. I actually hope they are ok!?

So my question is AIBU to want to know what the hell is going on????

Go out and ask the coppers. Offer them a cup of tea first.

Arfarfanarf Fri 22-Apr-16 10:56:25

drugs bust probably.
Or trying to find a criminal.

Sorry, that's just 'oh really, Arf. Police are trying to catch a criminal, how helpful are you' grin

Yanbu. I'd be finding a way to find out what's going on. Any washing to put out??

rainbowstardrops Fri 22-Apr-16 10:58:08

Ooh intriguing. I really want to know who the zz lister is grin

I agree, pretend to pop to the shop/post box/neighbour and just ask!

TheSpottedZebra Fri 22-Apr-16 10:59:43

Ooh, who is zz lister.
Can we play guessing games?

Are they from a reality show?

MrsMainwaring Fri 22-Apr-16 11:01:26

Agree .Go and hang out some washing

Ask! Say you're nosy worried

So last night, I put the rubbish out "twice"

I've now just gone to my car outside MY house to ummmm find some rubbish

Getting nothing - can't even pick up anything from their radio talk

They've now gone again as next door are not in.

If they come back later, I might casually move my car from outside MY house.

I thought drugs raid.

I now think, what if it's really serious, what if they ask ME questions - I don't handle this shit too well as you can see.

I'm one of those people that walks through customs at the airport & instantly looks like I've got 4 kilos of crack up my arse.

It's sending me NUTS!

Is it Kerry Katona?

WonderingAspie Fri 22-Apr-16 11:06:31

YABU if you don't find out and report back. grin Also if you don't reveal the identity of the zz lister.

stonechallenge Fri 22-Apr-16 11:07:52

Actually I like the "I'm worried"

Yea - I'll use that line when they come back (if they come back)

I know the neighbours are out as both cars are not there & haven't been since 6pm last night.

Jesus I'm a curtain twitcher (lone parent get bored)

Don't like this on my door step!

stonechallenge Fri 22-Apr-16 11:08:31

Will 100% keep MN updated

wasonthelist Fri 22-Apr-16 11:08:55

Twitter? Whatever the modern equivalent of Popbitch is?

stonechallenge Fri 22-Apr-16 11:09:27

No ZZ top or Car Crash Kerry (although I sat on a plane with her once)

BitOutOfPractice Fri 22-Apr-16 11:14:01

Yes, check out ZZ on social media - see what they're up to as you're so nosy worried

BadDoGooder Fri 22-Apr-16 11:16:46

If it was a drugs raid I'd assume they'd have one of those battering ram thingys to get inside, so wouldn't need to be hanging around?
But tbh don't know enough about police procedure.

I'd consider sweeping your path/trimming hedge/washing car/emptying non existent rubbish etc until I found out, but I am a bloody nosy sod! grin

A house up the road from me was raided a few weeks ago, I was desperate to know what happened, but the bloke has disappeared, no word in the local paper, and no one knows what happened to him. confused

AssembleTheMinions Fri 22-Apr-16 11:17:34

I think we need a few clues to the identity of ZZ...

Oysterbabe Fri 22-Apr-16 11:18:25

Is it Dean Gaffney?

BadDoGooder Fri 22-Apr-16 11:18:58

And I usually have no interest whatsover in slebs, but I really want to know who it is and what they have done for some reason! need to get a life grin
