The department reported two small children under 10 years old went to the front porch of a home to see if a friend was there. When the friend answered the door, an unidentified man who had been standing on the porch outside of the child’s view asked if her mother was home, according to Spring Hill police.

The child reportedly replied that her mother was home and she was unable to come to the door.

After the man was told the mother was not coming to the door, he handed the child a $100 bill and told the child to give it to her mother, according to police.

The man was described by Spring Hill police as having white hair and a white goatee. He was wearing an orange shirt, blue jeans and tennis shoes and was seen driving away in a black 4-door Dodge Ram pickup with black rims.

Spring Hill police said the family does not know this person and the department is working to investigate what the man’s intentions were. If you have information regarding this investigation, you can submit an anonymous tip here.
