There are some concerned parents in Acushnet after reports of suspicious activity this morning in the South Main Street area of town.

One Acushnet parent told Fun 107 that a man got out of the backseat of a silver Toyota with dark tinted windows and started taking pictures of children at a school bus stop at about 7:20 this morning.

"They took off once they saw the bus," she said. "The man jumped back in the backseat and took off."

Acushnet Police said that they received a call about the suspicious car at 9:22 this morning. Three minutes later, police were at the reporting party's house. After hearing what was reported, it was determined that no crime had been committed at this time. No further action was taken.

While few parents would appreciate the thought of a stranger taking pictures of their children in public, police say it's not a crime.

"Taking picture of anyone is public is legal," explained Sergeant Jeremy Fontes.

Fontes said that anyone with further information about this morning's incident should give the police a call. He also made it a point to appreciate the vigilance that was shown by the person who called the police this morning.

"People should definitely keep their eyes open," Fontes said. "Never hesitate to call us if something doesn't seem right. We'd always rather go out to a call and have it be nothing, than to find out about something a few days later and be behind."

The phone number for Acushnet Police is (508) 998-0240.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
