No additional reports about suspicious male accused of trying to lure a girl into his car in Merritt.
Merritt RCMP Cst Tracy Dunsmore says it appears the incident back on March 3rd, where a male reportedly tried to lure a 11-year-old girl into his vehicle on Garcia St, was isolated.
The male in question was believed to have been driving a silver four-door Honda, and is described as Caucasian, roughly 35-years old, with blondish hair and blue eyes.
"Nope, nobody has called in anyone that might fit the description."
Luckily, after repeated attempts to coax the girl into his car, the male left her alone.
Anyone who may have seen him is still being asked to contact Merritt RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
'Pride' stickers being used to show diversity is both welcomed, and accepted in Merritt.
The decision by the City of Merritt last month to deny a request from students at Merritt Secondary School to have a rainbow crosswalk painted on Coldwater Ave has led to many in the city, and outside of it, questioning whether the city is accepting of alternative lifestyles.
In response, Kerstin Auer, and her husband have created a 'pride' sticker, which they are distributing at no cost to residents, who want to make sure the LGBTQ2 community feel welcomed.
"I don't want to be a part of the negativity. I just want to make sure people outside of Merritt know we welcome diversity, and we welcome everybody here, and that Merritt is a great place to live, and to do business at."
1000 'pride' stickers have been printed, and Auer says as many as 400 are already in circulation.
