The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a suspicious individual who was observed walking around Sams Valley Elementary School on June 8.
The man, who arrived in a silver/gray four-door sedan resembling a Nissan Sentra with unknown registration, parked his vehicle and proceeded to walk slowly along the school’s perimeter fence.
