The Kamloops RCMP Detachment is asking for the public’s help after receiving a report of a suspicious van near a school yesterday afternoon.

On February 24, just before 4 p.m., Kamloops RCMP received a report involving two kids who were followed by a white caravan style-van in the Meadowland Crescent area. The van was driven by a man in his 30s with a mohawk and sunglasses. The man in the van allegedly circled the block five times and at one point, stopped and stared at the kids; it drove away when one of them took out their phone.

Police are asking residents in the Meadowland Crescent area and its surrounding blocks to please check their home surveillance for any images of a white van in the area around the time school lets out.

If you know who was driving the van, or if you were the driver of the van, it’s very important to contact police so we can further this investigation and find out what is going on, said Constable Crystal Evelyn, spokesperson for the Kamloops RCMP.

Residents are also asked to please review safety and street-proofing tips with their kids.

While this investigating is still ongoing and we don’t have all the facts and information available at this time, discussing good safety habits and tips is always a good idea, Cst. Evelyn added.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to please contact Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2021-5859.

Below are some street-proofing tips to discuss with your kids.
