History - Capture of Christopher Boyce
The task force began focusing on Port Angeles, Washington, based on
information they had developed that Boyce was living in that city.
Four surveillance teams were formed: one to cover the hotels and
apartment houses, two "rolling teams" to
search for a vehicle suspected to be used by Boyce, and another team to
serve as backup to make routine patrols.
Inquiries at local supermarkets on Friday morning, August 21, produced
several witnesses who, through photographs, identified Boyce as having
recently purchased some beer at the store.
Later that evening surveillance teams began to monitor an area between
several locations that Boyce was suspected to frequent. One surveillance
unit drove through the parking lot of a small eatery in Port
Angeles, the "Pit Stop Restaurant and Drive-In," but, since no one
resembling Boyce seemed to be in the area, they decided to search
elsewhere and return to the restaurant later in the evening.
