SWR superintendent: Police to increase patrols after report of suspicious vehicle

Two men in a silver sedan were reportedly taking cell phone photos of students as they were dropped off at a bus stop in Wading River Friday, according to a message from Shoreham-Wading River Superintendent Gerard Poole.

A suspicious vehicle was parked on Hidden Pond Path and the students were being dropped off a nearby bus stop.

“We have been in contact with the Riverhead Police Department on this matter and have been advised additional patrol vehicles will be in the area to monitor the section firsthand,” Mr. Poole wrote in a message posted on the district website Saturday.

Mr. Poole wrote that the district takes student safety and security “very seriously” and he encouraged parents to discuss with their children to be aware of their surroundings when traveling to and from school.

“This latest incident serves as an important reminder that if you see something, say something,” Mr. Poole wrote. “I will be sure to provide any updates on this matter when they become available.”
