There’s an email going around Bonney Lake and a flurry of Facebook activity regarding a white SUV that’s been spotted trying to snatch kids.
Before I could get all the words out of my mouth, a record specialist at the Bonney Lake Police Department told me the report is a rumor, completely false.
“It is inaccurate,” she said.
A coworker sent me this Facebook post this morning from a friend of hers:
A White SUV with nice rims and a skull trailer hitch cover trying to snatch kids in BonneyLake. At the park in Brookside this car had an adult jump out and grab one of the kids, luckily a parent was close enough to scare them away. Police were called and police said its the 4th incident with this car! Keep your eyes out friends in BL call police if you see this vechile!
In addition to the Facebook activity, there’s an email with the same information. Bonney Lake police have been receiving several phone calls a day about the activity.
There are no reports of such activity in Bonney Lake or with the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.
