JULINGTON CREEK, Fla. -- Detectives with the St. John's County Sheriff's Office were investigating reports of a suspicious incident involving a child, and confirmed no bad intentions were made.
Deputies responded to the Plantation Grove Subdivision Monday night to meet with the mother of a child, who told her a man allegedly asked him to get in his vehicle and guide him out of the neighborhood, according to a release from the SJCSO.
The man drove away in a red, Ford F150, with ladders in the bed of the truck. The driver of the truck is described as a white male, 50 to 60-years-old, balding, with facial hair.
SJCSO detectives received many tips Wednesday evening that helped identify the man and the vehicle tag number, according to a SJCSO media release. The media release says the unknown man also contacted the Sheriff's Office and was interviewed Thursday.
