This past weekend, a family on Shadowlawn Drive had a frightening experience that turned out just fine because their children were taught the appropriate response to the situation. Two children were playing in the front yard when a grey boxy vehicle, possibly a Jeep, pulled up to them. The children reported that the driver, a man, had offered them candy and that there was a woman in the back seat.
