A reported case of child luring in Lacey did not occur as reported, according to Lacey Police.
The juvenile girl who reported the incident supposedly involving a man in a white pickup truck has cooperated with detectives and resolved inconsistencies in her story, police said Thursday night.
Meanwhile, Olympia Police are investigating a possible child luring, spokeswoman Laura Wohl said.
In the Olympia case, a middle school girl was walking along Conger Avenue near Jefferson Middle School last Friday afternoon when a stranger pulled up and offered her a ride to school. The girl refused, and the man drove away, Wohl said. Police were notified that evening by the students parents.
The suspect was described as a white male, in his 20s, with dark brown or black hair. He was driving a small, white pickup truck, possibly a Ford Ranger, Wohl said.
Anyone with information can call Olympia Police at 360-753-8300, or Thurston County Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
We just ask that students and their parents be constantly aware of their environment and if they see anything suspicious to call 911, Wohl said.
