The Casper Police Department will have an increased presence in the area of Verda James Elementary School for the next several days after a suspicious person followed  student home on Tuesday.

The student made it home safely.

Officials say the suspicious person was driving an older brown Ford truck with rust on the vehicle exterior.

In a news release put out Wednesday, the Natrona County School District asks the community to keep an eye out for suspicious behavior or people. The district also asks folks to call local law enforcement to report any suspicious activity.

"Natrona County School District's primary goal is student and staff safety," the release reads.
