Constable Jackelynn Passarell, of the Fort St. John RCMP, confirms that police received seperate reports on Sunday and Monday, both of which raised concerns for children in the area.

She says the Sunday incident began when a man approached a young female in Taylor, to make inquiries about puchasing her dog. The girl’s mother was on hand, and feeling the incident was suspicious, reported it to police. However, after attending the scene, and speaking with all of the parties involved, the police determined that the man was genuinely interested in the dog, and there was no cause for concern.

Constable Passarell says police received another call on Monday, related to a suspicious vehicle near the Taylor School. She says police have followed up on the second incident, and will continue to do so, but at this point, feel there is no cause for concern. Passarell also stresses that the two incidents appear unrelated.

Passarell does say, that parents and students should continue to be vigilent.
