Editor's Note: The following letter was written and submitted by North Bellmore School District Superintendent Arnold Goldstein.
While there is no reason for alarm, I wanted you to know that a suspicious vehicle was spotted outside Dinkelmeyer during dismissal this afternoon.
The white GMC Denali, with a black grill, remained standing for a period of time and then moved on. The driver was described as a large man about six feet tall, with dark complexion (not African American), short dark cropped hair with a sharp angled beard on his jaw.
Police were notified and are following up. They advise that if you spot the truck or see anything suspicious, you should call 911 immediately. The police caution that you should NOT follow the vehicle under any circumstances. Additionally, I urge you to speak with your children and to advise them to be alert and to avoid contact with strangers.
Thank you. We will continue to keep you informed if there is any additional information to share.
