10/26/17 – 5:24 A.M.

Fostoria police officers are looking into reports of a suspicious van following people in the city. The Review-Times reports rumors about a silver van with Florida license plates started circulating on the “Fostoria area garage sale 44830” Facebook page late Tuesday afternoon. A woman claimed five or six men were watching her and followed her in the van as she walked home.

Police Chief Keith Loreno says officers are aware of the van and are investigating. He is urging residents to call 9-1-1 before they post about incidents on social media. Police received a call about the van around two hours after the social media post.

Loreno adds there’s no confirmation that anyone in the van was going to abduct anyone.
