A man allegedly tried to lure a Kelly School student into his vehicle while outside of the school Monday, Oct. 1, according to the Tracy police log.

Extra police patrols were requested around the school, 535 Mabel Josephine Drive, at 11:04 a.m., when the 11-year-old boy told his mother about the incident.

The boy reportedly rode away on his bicycle and was unable to provide a description of the man or his vehicle.

According to the log, the man allegedly tried to lure the child into the vehicle but didn’t follow him when he rode away.

An astute observation an one I agree with.

See it happenin everywhere though. See a lot of people pullin inta parkin lots of small convenience stores all over th place an it seems it's too much trouble th shut th engine off, lock th door an conduct thair business only ta find that in that few seconds while doin that business someone steals thair runnin car as if they were invited ta do so.

Had a lady friend that did this all th time. Happened ta be in an area whare she didn't spot me an when she went inside I hopped in her car an parked it out on th street. When she came out she was flabbergasted that someone stole her car.

She was about ta call th police when I said, "Relax Sharron (not her real name) I saw it runnin so I parked it over on th street, tarned it off an locked it up, here are yer keys."

Taught her a lesson cus now she shuts it off, locks it up an conducts her business accordingly.

She was kinda miffed at th time but she larned th lesson an eventually was appreciate that it was me who "stole" her car an not some stranger that wouldn't easily give it back.
