Attempted Kidnappings in Shelton

On 09-18-18 there were two attempted kidnappings in Shelton, just after school, near the Mountain View Elementary School. Neither attempts were successful and the children got away. The Shelton Police Department is actively investigating these two attempted kidnappings. Please see additional information on ifiberonenewsradio and http://masonwebtv.com regarding this. The Squaxin Island Police Department takes this seriously and is committed to the safety of our children and the community. I ask everyone to be vigilant and call 911 if you see any suspicious activity in our community. Thanks for your support in keeping the community safe.

Thought for the Day
A competent and self-confident person is incapable of jealousy in anything. Jealousy is invariably a symptom of neurotic insecurity.
