Potential Sexual Predator Sought
Cookeville police are looking into a case in which a man reportedly offered $500 in cash to three girls if they would "go ride around" with him. Police say the incident occurred Friday afternoon as the three were having a yard sale at a home on Country Club Place, off 10th St. A black Jeep Grand Cherokee pulled up as the three teenagers were working and a man described as a white male with tanned skin pulled up and began a conversation. He was wearing a white shirt with black lettering on it and reportedly had a small child in the vehicle with him. They declined his offer and later called police. Officer Myke Green responded and looked for the vehicle, but did not locate it. He did advise the girls that they probably needed adult supervision for their yard sale.
