She was approached by 2 males in a “jacked up” silver/grey truck. The truck possibly has a Florida license plate. The truck was occupied by 2 older white males. Both males were reported having facial hair. The truck had some type of white and yellow logo on the doors. The male driver asked the child for directions to a local business. Also, he asked her age and name. The child walked away from the subject’s vehicle. On Wednesday October 26th, the same female child was again at City Park.

The child stated that the driver of the van was the passenger of the truck from the previous day. The child described the male as having a deep voice, wearing black pants and miner style boots. The child stated that the man asked her name and age and then exited his vehicle and began walking toward her. The child then ran away.

WPD has received numerous complaints about a popular IRS phone scam that has been occurring. Callers are posing as Internal Revenue Service representatives in an effort to defraud you. Do not give out any personal information to these individuals and terminate the call. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will not ask for credit card numbers over the phone, nor request a pre-paid debit card or wire transfer. If someone unexpectedly calls claiming to be from the IRS and threatens police arrest if you don’t pay immediately, that is a sign that it really isn’t the IRS calling.


Due to recent complaints and up and coming events of the season we would like all residents of the Village to be aware of a few Village Ordinances. Attached are copies of Village Ordinances for Barking Dogs, Open Burning, Noxious Weeds and Grass, and Removal of Litter.
