    OR~Children report being photographed by man in SUV/woman at the wheel

    Kudos to the parents who taught their children well and to the kids for following through with the safety plan. You'd think that if this was innocent (such as scouting for film locations), LE would have been notified. Creepy as all get out:

    West Linn [OR] residents report couple who appeared to be photographing children from SUV
    September 5, 2011

    "West Linn police are investigating reports from some residents who said they saw a man and woman driving around town, apparently taking photos of children. According to police, three people called Monday to say the saw a late-model silver SUV driving through their neighborhood. A woman was behind the wheel and a man was sitting in the back seat and appeared to be taking photos of children with a 35-mm single-lens reflex camera...."

    and

    "...He said the children involved went to directly their parents, which was "the best course of action...."

    One comment mentions an attempted abduction in the neighborhood a few years back. I'll do some checking.

    Sketch released in West Linn attempted abduction


    FWIW, West Linn is a very nice suburb of Portland and is where Gert Boyle, the Columbia Sportswear chairwoman, was the victim of a robbery and attempted kidnapping this last April. Creepy stuff happens in all neighborhoods.
