LOLO — The Missoula County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a pair of recent incidents in the Lolo area.

Law enforcement received a report on Tuesday that a man in a white van offered to give a young girl a ride home after school. The girl said she declined the ride and stated she was going to call her dad and the van drove away.

The second incident was an interaction at a Lolo gas station in which a male driving a box truck approached a 19-year-old and started asking her questions. He then offered to give her a ride to class, according to a social media post. She declined and left the area.

There’s no word on whether or not the incidents are related, but the Sheriff’s Office reports they are “working very closely with the Lolo School administration and continue to work this investigation."

The Lolo School District posted on social media that "neither of these events occurred at Lolo School, adjacent to Lolo School, or on school property."
