Sheriff: Pasco man attempted to lure children

- The Pasco County Sheriff's Office is asking for the community to be aware that a man was seen attempting to lure two children into his vehicle on Wednesday. 

According to PCSO, an unknown black male with a shaved head and no facial hair was driving a black pick up truck and stopped near a bus stop in Land O'Lakes and asked two children, ages seven and nine, if they wanted a ride. 

The two children ran off and told their parents about what happened. 

The truck sped off northbound. Deputies conducted a search of the area and remained in the neighborhood for several hours. They were able to track down surveillance video of a black pick-up truck with a toolbox in the bed, which was seen entering the area at around 7:40 a.m. Wednesday, and leaving shortly after.

Law enforcement is asking for the public's help in locating the vehicle. 

Anyone with information should contact the Pasco County Sheriff's Office at 727-847-8102.
