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".

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.
