WAYNESBORO, Pa. — Waynesboro Police are investigating suspicious activity involving a man in a pickup truck Friday morning near Fairview Elementary School on West Third Street near the intersection of Fairview Avenue.

 A white male between the ages of 50 and 60, with white curly hair, wearing a baseball hat and sunglasses, and driving an older model full-size black pickup truck with an orange stripe, waved money out the window of the truck at about 7:50 a.m. and asked a group of elementary age children if they wanted a dollar, a news release from the Waynesboro Police Department said.

"The children continued walking to Fairview Elementary School. The black pickup truck, with the orange stripe, was last seen heading west on West Third Street," the release said.

About 1 p.m., Evan Williams, assistant superintendent of the Waynesboro Area School District, sent a phone alert message to students, parents and guardians about the incident.

In addition to giving a description of the man, and his vehicle, Williams said: "Rest assured that police are aware and that security measures are in place."

No other details were available.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or may be familiar with the suspect vehicle is asked to call the Waynesboro Police Department at 717-762-2131.
