    There is a balding white male between 30 to 40 years of age asking children to get into his car after school lets out. He could be going around to different schools eliciting kids to get into his vehicle. The vehicle description is a shiny gray 4-door vehicle. This was in the area of 301 Perkins Drive, Suite B.
    I did confirm this with local law enforcement so please remind staff to keep extra eye out for suspicious persons at or around our schools.
