Russian Kidnapping Hoax

Over the last few months, I have seen some local posts about door to door salespeople looking for children to kidnap for sex trafficking. The posts usually say that it has happened/is happening in neighboring towns. Yet there are no media reports of any kidnappings. 


Here is an article from Snopes about this "hoax". http://www.snopes.com/crime/warnings/booksellers.asp

Please read the article.


Finally please feel free to call the Ogallala Police Department with any concerns. I try to put permitted itinerant merchants on the city website and Facebook as soon as I can. I also put out information when a permit is denied.
