Man tried to lure girl outside of Haines City Publix, police say”

A NY man is accused of using a dog to try to lure a 7-year-old girl into his motorhome in front of a Publix grocery store in Haines City.

Dale Collins, 63, is charged with attempting to lure or entice a child age 12 years or younger.

Collins then asked the girl if she wanted his phone number before her mom, who heard the exchange, insisted he leave.

Collins was pulled over a short time later and arrested on charges of luring/enticing a child, police said.

On July 23, 2017, at approximately 4pm, Haines City Police responded to a 911 call regarding an abduction at the Publix Supermarket located at 617 Highway 17/92.

If the public is aware of any other incidents involving Collins, they are urged to contact the Haines City Police Department at 863-421-3636 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS or LOG ONTO to submit your tip via the web.

When adults started yelling at him after noticing his suspicious behaviour, he went back to his camper van and left the area, police said. Police said the suspect said it was a misunderstanding and that he had not touched the girl, WFTV reported.

Authorities identified Collins by his NY driver's license and detained him.
