Patrols increased after youngster offered candy

An extra deputy will patrol a Center Grove area neighborhood after a boy told police a vehicle stopped and a passenger offered him candy.

The boy told police someone in a car offered him candy while he was walking home at about 3 p.m. Friday. The boy said he was walking south on Ramblin Road when a gray car that looked like a Buick LeSabre or a Ford Taurus pulled up next to him and a passenger asked if he wanted some candy, according to a Johnson County Sheriff’s Office report.

The passenger was a teenager, had light brown hair and was wearing a blue sweatshirt, the report said. The boy could not give the police a description of the driver, the report said.
