Suspicious Behavior In The Foothills ??

Postby TroyB » Sep 10th, 2012, 11:24 am

I heard this "story" and am looking for someone to lend some credibility to it.

I was told "someone" in a car rolled up some a child or a group of children in the foothills and made an offer of candy or the like. Offer was declined.

This seems to be all over facebook, but although I take my child's safety seriously I need a bit better source than that. Anyone know anything a little more first hand?

People are so nice in Vernon.

If you are really concerned for your kids, you could always verify the authenticity by calling the non emergency police line. Vernon RCMP
Police - non emergency - 545-7171.

you can be assured if there was a incident it would be posted on castanet news and on the local radio.
i have heard nothing of this.
still always good to remind your kids to be alert.

Vernon RCMP are following up on a report of an attempt to lure and 11-year-old boy into a vehicle.

According to the boy he was with friends on Blackcomb Way off Silver Star Road Saturday when he was approached by two people in a van.

Molendyk says police encourage parents whose children are approached by strangers to report it to police immediately.

Police would also like to remind parents to speak to their children about how to react if they are approached by strangers.

"Do not go to the vehicle - run home or to a sa
