BEMIDJI -- The Bemidji Police Department is warning area residents after several females reported they were approached in business parking lots about “modeling” opportunities.

On Sunday, Sept. 16, police received a report of suspicious activity that occurred in an area business parking lot. Police said a female was approached by a male and female couple who asked if she would be interested in a modeling opportunity out of state. The female refused and reported the incident to police the following day, according to a release from Bemidji Police Capt. David LaZella.

On Monday, Sept. 17, Bemidji Police received a second report of similar activity in a different business parking lot. A male approached a female and asked similar questions, and when the female declined to speak with him, he abruptly left the area, the release said. Another female was approached by the same couple in yet another area business parking lot and asked if she was interested in modeling out of state. The female declined, and the couple provided vague contact information and left, the release said.

Bemidji detectives are working to positively identify the individuals, who have reportedly been seen in St. Louis and Carlton counties. Detectives have identified the vehicle the couple was driving as a 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe, beige in color with Idaho registration K664960.

Anyone with information related to this case or the location of the vehicle should contact the Bemidji Police Department at (218) 333-9111
