Ladd Students Say They Were Approached By Shady Character

Posted by wlpo on April 15, 2011

Police in Ladd are investigating a report of two kids being approached by a suspicious man offering them a ride.

Ladd Police Chief William Gaefcke says a 10-year old boy and 5-year old girl were walking to class yesterday morning on South Main Street when they say a man in his 50’s approached them in a silver sedan with lightly tinted windows.  The kids told police the suspect asked if they wanted a ride in a stern voice.  They instead ran home.

If you see or hear about any similar incidents, call the Bureau County Sheriff’s Office.
