Puyallup police are trying to identify a suspicious man who has been spotted on elementary school campuses with no apparent reason to be there.

Teachers have reported that the man has entered classrooms before and after school is in session at least five times in recent weeks. Nothing appears to be missing and although he behaves as though he has reason to be at the schools, police said information he has provided is false.

“There is no current crime being investigated, but police are very interested in identifying this subject to determine his motives for this suspicious behavior,” according to a Puyallup police news release.

The man has been seen driving a tan single-cab 4×4 truck. He is white, about 30 years old, 5 foot 10 with a medium build and short brown hair worn in a flat top. He may also have a big tattoo on one of his forearms.

Puyallup school employees who see the man are asked to call 911.
