Subject:  Update to Report of Suspicious Activity

            On Monday, September 24, 2018 Bloomsburg Police were advised by Bloomsburg University officials of suspicious activity on Lightstreet Rd.  The report indicated a female in her 30’s, with a Russian accent was canvasing Lightstreet Road the day prior looking for young girls to participate in a movie.

            Today the Bloomsburg Police received a call from the Greater Philadelphia Film Office.  They assured us there are two women who are producing a film and are in the Bloomsburg area talking to potential candidates to participate in an independent film they are producing.  One of the producers does have an accent, but she is from South America.  They are looking for a particular “type” or “look” and may approach persons who meet the criteria they are looking for.
