Police confirm identity of white van that caused concern among residents

Farmington police say there is no threat from the occupants of a white van that has been the cause of several calls to the police department and at least a few anxious Facebook posts in recent days. 

Residents reported seeing the van driving slowly through Farmington neighborhoods and some said the driver sped off when questioned. According to police, callers were worried about the safety of their children.

Police located the van and confirmed that the occupants work for the St. Paul Pioneer Press. They were verifying addresses for the newspaper.
