MAN TRIES TO ENTICE CHILDREN IN FREMONT COUNTY
(SIDNEY) The Fremont County Sheriff’s Office says a man tried to entice several children in Sidney Wednesday afternoon.
At around 3:40 p.m. a white male, estimated to be in his fifties driving a black late model pickup truck with a topper on the bed, attempted to entice the children to get near his truck with lollipops on the north end of Maple Street. When the children would not approach the vehicle he threw the lollipops at them and drove up the street to the next set of kids and did the same thing.
The man is described as balding and wearing a plaid shirt with a tan jacket. There was also a small white dog in the vehicle, possibly a poodle.
The Sidney Police Department and the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind parents and guardians to take some time with their children and talk about stranger danger and what their children should do in this type of situation.
Anyone with information on this incident should contact Chief Poppie at 712-374-2365.
