Newport Area Warning

Updated 6 years ago

An unidentified woman has approached residents in the area claiming she’s conducting a survey on behalf of the school system.

Superintendent William Braun says they are not conducting a survey at this time, and the woman is not connected to the school.

Braun says he first heard of an incident a month ago in Corinna.

Last week, he got word it happened again. This time in palmyra.

Braun says he has no idea what the woman’s intentions might be, he just wants people to be cautious.

In both cases the woman was described as young and driving a black vehicle.

Braun says if the school system ever does conduct a survey they would notify people first.

If you are approached by someone like this, get an I.D. from them and make an appointment. That way you’ll have time to check with the school system to make sure this person is legitimate.
