Facebook posts shared by several Ottawa-area community members said a man in a white van had been recording images of children in Ottawa, but police said they have not received any such reports.
Ottawa Police Capt. Dave Gualandri said Tuesday he is familiar with the man in question, but no one has filed a report with police the man has been making recordings. Gualandri said police have received nuisance reports on the man in the past, such as he was trespassing or littering.
Gualandri encouraged anyone with information about anyone recording children or otherwise acting suspiciously, to contact police. Ottawa police can be reached at: 815-433-2131.
