CORINTH –– Over a three-day span from Oct. 26 to 28, the Vermont State Police received multiple reports regarding a suspicious white vehicle in the Corinth and Topsham areas.
The vehicle has been described variably as a Toyota RAV4 and an older model Subaru Forester.
Although no one was harmed or directly threatened in these incidents, individuals have expressed safety concerns stemming from their encounters.
The Field Force Division and Bureau of Criminal Investigations of the VSP have undertaken investigations in response to these reports and have increased their patrol visibility in the mentioned areas.

Presently, the VSP has not established any tangible link between these incidents nor identified any criminal violations. There are no current indications of a threat to public safety related to these reports.
The VSP encourages the public to adopt the “see something, say something” approach.
They emphasize that they rigorously investigate all reports of suspicious activities, assessing them for potential patterns and similarities.
