Leyland, not Leland

Boston Police say it was Leyland Street in Roxbury, not Leland Street in JP. I don't know which one I would rather it be, though. One is next to my house and the other is next to my office at work.

Thanks. The BPD tweet did say "Leyland," I obviously missed the 'y'.

and I was there a couple days ago. Not to pick up drugs, but a mis-delivered package. Shoes in fact.
