Appleton Police address story spreading on Facebook

Appleton Police is addressing a story spreading on Facebook about a man trying to put a tracking device on a woman's vehicle. 

In a Facebook post of their own, police say several people shared the story on Facebook over the past few days. The alleged incident is believed to have happened at Kwik Trip in Appleton. The post stated police responded and determined the incident was related to sex trafficking...but Appleton Police are refuting that claim.

"We appreciate the concern but, we have no record of the incident and do not believe it occurred within the City of Appleton," Appleton Police wrote on Facebook. 

While the public is encouraged to contact police with any concerns, Appleton Police is also telling people not to believe everything they read on the Internet.
