ALERT: Possible Child Enticement In Post Falls & Coeur d' Alene

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE FROM POST FALLS POLICE DEPT. - The Post Falls Police Department is investigating a possible child enticing similar in nature to the recent enticing incidents that have occurred in Post Falls and in Coeur d'Alene. 

On December 15th at 8:10 AM an eleven-year old female and a six-year old female were walking to their school bus on Warm Springs Rd in Post Falls. A male in a full sized navy blue van with a large horizontal grey stripe on the side drove up to the juveniles and stopped his vehicle. The male looked at the females, at which time they fled to a neighboring house for safety. This same van was seen park outside of the juveniles' home with the engine running. 

The male did not make contact with the females in either incident, but out of an abundance of caution, the Police Department feels it necessary to notify the public.  The van is described as having only front passenger windows, silver wheels, and possibly Idaho license plates.  The van is estimated to be a late 90's model. The driver is reported to be a white male with grey hair and a slight beard.

Parents are asked to speak with their children about dealing with strangers.  We recommend that children walk with friends and never alone. children should immediately flee the area if approached and call 911.

The investigation into all of these incidents continues.  Our agency is working closely with the Post Falls School District to increase security around schools.  If anyone sees a vehicle matching this description, please take note of the license plate and call the Post Falls Police at 208-773-3517.  Tips can also be left at 208-777-COPS or at www.postfallspolice.com.

For more information please contact Lt. Greg Mclean at (208) 773-3517
