ST. GEORGE – Police are on the lookout for a white minivan with lime-green stripes on the side and California license plates in order to question the driver and occupants in relation to alleged “suspicious activity” committed in the St. George area. The police are also asking for the public’s help in locating the vehicle.
St. George Police Sgt. Sam Despain couldn’t confirm the exact nature of the suspicious activity mentioned in a press release issued by police Monday night. He said the fact something suspicious was reported and that police have a description of the vehicle involved is all he could confirm at this point.
“That’s all we have,” Despain said.
The “BOLO,” or “Be on the Lookout” bulletin has also been posted on the Washington County School District website as of Tuesday morning.
According to the website: “Washington County School District is taking the necessary precautions to ensure student safety. School will be conducted as usual with safety precautions in place.”

Anyone who has any information concerning the vehicle, please contact the St. George Police Department at 435-627-4300.
A separate incident that also took place Monday afternoon involving a “domestic custody incident” may be getting confused with the BOLO alert, Despain said.
Around 2:50 p.m., Monday, the St George Communications Center received a call concerning a suspicious vehicle in the area of 1400 West and 1300 North. An occupant of the vehicle was seen speaking with a juvenile who lives in the area. There was a concern that this could have been an attempt to abduct a child.
Officers made contact with all parties involved and determined no crime had taken place. It appears this incident involves a domestic custody incident in which no crime occurred.
