FRANKFORT (STWM)– Police in southwest suburban Frankfort are warning residents about a suspicious newer white Chevrolet van that was seen on Thursday in the southwest suburb.

According to police, the driver, a white unshaven male about 50 years old, was parked near a school bus stop near Pine Ridge Drive and was asking children if they wanted to see the puppies inside his van.

When he was approached by an adult, the driver did a U-turn and drove away. The adult followed him until he drove out of town, police said.

    Maybe he was trying to show off his puppies. Someone calling 911 would have looked foolish if that were the case. No crime was committed.

    Are you for real? No crime was committed because he didn’t get the opportunity. No “innocent” adult is going to drive a van with no plates and ask kids if they want to see his puppies. Live in the real world, man!
