This is important!
A new kidnapping scheme should have you on the lookout. Ashley Hardacre, 19, is sharing her story by posting a story on Facebook about her recent experience. Ashley was leaving her job at a mall in Flint, Michigan the day after Valentine’s day. She saw a few cars that seemed to be moving around the lot, looking suspicious.
When Ashley got to her car, she noticed that a blue flannel shirt on her windshield. The shirt had been wrapped around her wiper blades. She knew with the two cars in the lot and the creepy feeling she had, she couldn’t stop and try to get the shirt off.
She just drove out of the parking lot with the shirt on her car. Once she had driven to a safe place, she stopped and removed the shirt. Ashley’s post has been shared over 100,000 times since it was posted.
The local police noticed the post and do not currently have an explanation. There doesn’t seem to be a good reason to tie a shirt around a windshield wiper of a car – unless you intend to distract the person and then kidnap or mug them.
Please spread the word. Do not take the time to remove something you see on your windshield. You may find flyers or notes – and now shirts affixed to your car. Just get in and drive.
Once you are safe, you can take it off. Be aware and be vigilant.
Stay safe out there! Share away, people.
