Van Buren County Sheriff's Office News

Yesterday afternoon the Van Buren County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of an attempted child abduction at the Bonaparte city park. The report was made by an 11 year old female who reported being near the boatramp when she was approached by an older white male in a van. Several deputies responded to the area and were not able to locate the described vehicle. An interview with the juvenile was also conducted. Over the course of the investigation video surviellance footage of the park/boatramp area was obtained. At this time it appears that the incident was a false report. Never the less we encourage everyone to be vigilant, and report any suspicious activity near parks, playgrounds, etc.

We've been receiving many reports of residents recieving scam calls this week. The majority of the calls are someone claiming to be with the IRS and telling the target person that they have unpaid back taxes and a warrant for their arrest. The IRS will NOT CALL and threaten anyone with being arrested unless they pay back taxes immediately over the phone. The other reports we have recieved are from persons claiming to be with the Social Security Administration and telling the target person that their SSN has been blacklisted and ask them to confirm their number. DO NOT give or, confirm your SSN to anyone you dont know over the phone.

The secondary roads in Van Buren County are getting very slick as are the city streets. The state highways are better but, are starting to accumulate slush. If you dont have to be out please stay off of the roads.

Thank you to all that shared and responded to our earlier post. The two subjects have been identified.
