Facebook Incident

Posted on 26th April 2013 at 16:22

Following up on yesterday’s story about possible sexual predators posing as teen pop stars on Facebook, then contacting local kids, a Kelso woman called the Sheriff’s Office yesterday morning, saying that someone claiming to be Justin Bieber had been conversing with her daughter. Deputies eventually contacted the girl and her grandmother, who says that this person had been chatting and texting with the girl. When questioned, the girl says that the conversations had been about “normal things,” and that the person posing as Bieber had never brought up the idea that they should meet. Deputies were able to get a phone number from the girl; they once again cautioned her and the parents about the possible dangers of this type of activity. The information gathered is being turned over to Kelso Police Detectives.
