On Thursday August 29, 2013 Paragould Police were notified about a suspicious vehicle in the area of Carriage Hills Drive.
Greene County Tech School Resource Officer Tony Harris notified the police department about a gray van with a red stripe that had stopped at a residence on Carriage Hills Drive while the children were waiting to catch the bus.
The children at the residence went into the house when the van pulled into their driveway. One child told school officials that it looked like the man driving was going to get out of the van, but backed up and drove away when the children went into the house.
The child told the school that the van was still in the area when she was on the bus.
Paragould Police are not certain at this time what the driver's intent was (if any), but would like to remind parents to speak with their children about what to do if they have a similar incident. This information is being released to caution parents to watch for any strange activity when children will be outside.
The Paragould Police Department has not received any other calls related to this incident, and have not received any missing children reports.
