    If you come across a baby carriage on the side of the road.

     

    Good Info, please read entire story and make sure you inform your family

    members and friends.

     

    You never know how far this spans, so please be careful wherever you are!

    SITUATION...

     

    While driving on a rural end of the roadway on Thursday morning, I saw

     

    an infant car seat on the side of the road with a blanket draped over

     

    it.

     

    For whatever reason, I did not stop, even though I had all kinds of

     

    thoughts running through my head. But when I got to my destination, I

     

    called the Canton PD and they were going to check it out.

    But, this is what the Police advised even before they went out there to

    check....

     

    "There are several things to be aware of ... gangs and thieves are now

     

    plotting different ways to get a person (mostly women) to stop their

     

    vehicle and get out of the car.

     

    "There is a gang initiation reported by the local Police Department

     

    where gangs are placing a car seat by the road...with a fake baby in

     

    it...waiting for a woman, of course, to stop and check on the abandoned

     

    baby.

     

    "Note that the location of this car seat is usually beside a wooded or

     

    grassy (field) area and the person -- woman -- will be dragged into the

     

    woods, beaten, raped, and usually left for dead. If it's a man,

     

    they're usually beaten, robbed and maybe left for dead, too.

     

     

    DO NOT STOP FOR ANY REASON!!! DIAL 9-1-1 AND REPORT WHAT YOU SAW

     

    DON'T EVEN SLOW DOWN.

     

     

    "IF YOU ARE DRIVING AT NIGHT AND EGGS ARE THROWN AT YOUR WINDSHIELD, DO

     

    NOT STOP TO CHECK THE CAR, DO NOT OPERATE THE WIPER AND DO NOT SPRAY ANY

     

    WATER BECAUSE EGGS MIXED WITH WATER BECOME MILKY AND BLOCK YOUR VISION

     

    UP TO 92.5%, AND YOU ARE THEN FORCED TO STOP BESIDE THE ROAD AND BECOME

     

    A VICTIM OF THESE CRIMINALS.

     

    THIS IS A NEW TECHNIQUE USED BY GANGS, SO PLEASE INFORM YOUR FRIENDS AND

     

    RELATIVES.

     

    THESE ARE DESPERATE TIMES AND THESE ARE UNSAVORY INDIVIDUALS WHO WILL

     

    TAKE DESPERATE MEASURES TO GET WHAT THEY WANT."

     

     

    Please talk to your loved ones about this. This is a new tactic used.

     

    Please be safe. Get started NOW -- SEND THIS MESSAGE TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND

    LOVED ONES

     

    TO BE CAREFUL AND AWARE OF EVERYTHING AROUND THEM SO AS NOT TO BECOME A

     

    VICTIM.

     

    As you all can see this is a very dangerous and serious topic, please be

    aware of your surroundings, keep a cell phone with you at all times, you

    never know when you going to need it, and inform your love ones of this type

    of business conducted by gangs, sexual predators and others.
