Leduc RCMP concerned about male in suspicious vehicle

Leduc RCMP concerned about male in suspicious vehicle

  • Jun. 23, 2015 12:00 p.m.

Leduc RCMP have received a complaint of a driver of a van that has apparently tried to speak with some children, during two instances in June.  These were reported as a suspicious occurrence. The youth noted a grey van had followed them in the Caledonia/Tribute neighborhood after school. A lone male in his mid 30’s appeared to be driving. The white male is described as approximately six feet tall with brown hair, average build. The youth did not interact with the driver. Police have no knowledge that anything illegal or inappropriate was planned.

“From a public safety perspective, reports of this type of suspicious activity related to youth are always concerning.” Notes Cst. Julian Celms of the Leduc RCMP.  “We ask that citizens of Leduc keep a watchful eye out for our children this summer.”

Should anyone see a male in a grey van appear to be actively soliciting youth in a suspicious manner, we would encourage the public to write down the following:

·         A description of the van, make of the van

·         The license plate of the vehicle

·         A description of the youth(s)

·         A description of the occupants

·         When/where this happened

Police wish to remind the public that they should NOT approach the driver or occupants. Unless an urgent emergency occurs, please report your information to the Leduc RCMP on the 24 hour complaint line at 780-980-RCMP (7267).
