The report of a suspicious person in Emmitsburg Monday morning turned out to be unfounded.
The Frederick County Sheriff's Office was notified that a girl waiting for the school bus at around 6:45 AM was approached by a man who asked if she wanted to purchase drugs. The student ran to her home, and the suspicious individual took off in an unknown direction.
The Sheriff's Office conducted an investigation, and determined this incident did not occur, and the girl made up the story.
Despite this false alarm, citizens are urged to report any suspicious individual or activity to their local law enforcement.
