Reports of a suspicious person near an elementary school in Cranbrook Friday turned out to be false.
RCMP responded Friday morning after a student at Kootenay Orchard School claimed a suspicious person was seen near the waste bin at the east side of the school.
Officers made patrols of the immediate area, and called in a service dog, but were unable to locate anyone suspicious and could not find any fresh foot prints.
After further investigation, police determined there was no evidence to support the report at this time.
Cranbrook RCMP is asking student and parents to be aware of your surroundings and don’t hesitate to call police if you have concerns of anyone seen around your neighbourhood.
