A local women’s viral post about suspicious behavior is having a ripple effect. St. Pete police said in just the last week they are getting multiple videos of other suspicious people. But, people are taking it to a new level and that is potentially putting innocent lives in danger.
A police spokesperson for St Petersburg police said some monitoring of suspicious behavior has reached a level of hysteria. Police detectives say the reporting reached higher levels after a Dunedin woman reported that human trafficker followed her into the grocery store. Over 17 million people viewed her Facebook Live post.
Police in St Petersburg recommend that is a person sees something suspicious, the incident should be report the person or incident immediately.
Police recommend to safely gather details, such as taking note of a license plate or taking a picture.
People should be careful about taking someone’s picture, or writing down information in the suspicious person’s view and/or reach, because it could cause a fight or violent reaction.
