Sheriff deputies investigating attempted luring

Spokane County detective investigated for poaching

Spokane County Sheriff deputies are investigating an attempted luring that happened Tuesday morning in the area of Bridle Trail and Lidgerwood.

A 6th grade student was waiting at a bus stop when an SUV pulled up to the bus stop. A male passenger inside the vehicle, a grey Chevy Suburban with a black stripe on the side, asked the girl if she needed a ride into town.

The girl backed away from the SUV and the passenger opened the door but never got out. A few moments later the SUV sped away from the scene.

The passenger was described as being a white male in his 20s with blonde hair, blonde beard and mustache. The driver was also described as being a white male in his 20s, also with blonde hair but no facial hair.

The Mead School District notified parents about the incident.

Anyone with information about this attempted luring is asked to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
