Barton County Sheriff investigating reports of men in trucks trying to lure children by using puppies, ice cream truck melodies

(From the Barton County Sheriff's Office)

The Barton County Sheriff's Office is requesting the assistance from the public. We have recieved two separate reports of suspicious activity and believe they may be linked together.

First Report: In Golden City a female juvenile was playing in her yard when a white or cream in color pickup truck pulled up next to the yard that she was playing in.

A man in the truck attempted to lure the child to his truck by showing her a small puppy. 

Luckily the mother was able to intervene and the male subject left. The mother contacted the Sheriff's Office and a report was made on the incident. Deputies patrolled the area looking for the vehicle but it's believed to have left the area.

Second Report: A white extended cab pickup truck has been spotted inside the city limits of Golden City acting suspicious. The truck drives through the city limits while playing an ice cream truck melody. The truck is reported to not have any markings on it and drives around in the late afternoon.

We are asking you to contact the Barton County Sheriff's Office if you see anything suspicious or if you have any information about the above incidents.

You can contact us at 417-682-5541 or you can send an email
