White Vans and Crime
White vans are no longer a symbol of crime. Although there have been some cases in which white vans have been involved, most of these cases have not been proven to be true. Some white van sightings have gone viral, mainly due to false information spread on social media.
A white van was used to kidnap a child in a recent instance. The thief took the child out of his white van and offered candy or even a puppy. However, it is rare to see a puppy for sale in a white van. Many kidniers argue that the van doesn’t display a price list. While the vans are not typically used to offer goods for sale, the roofs of the vehicles often house ladders, PVC tubing, measuring sticks, and other tools that are used in construction work.
In the United States, fear about white vans is not new, but recent posts in social media have fueled fears about crime and the danger of these vehicles. In Baltimore, the mayor has even warned people against parking in front of white vans. The stories are a combination of many different fears, from sex trafficking to organ sales. Some people have also been wary of men driving white vans, for fear of being victimized by them.
Despite the dangers of white vans, people still need to take care of their personal safety and keep their children safe. Traffickers can drive any type or car, even white vans. Protecting your children’s safety is as simple as keeping an eye on your surroundings and avoiding any uncomfortable situations. If you do see a white van, call 911 immediately instead of posting a message on social media.
Gjuandell Efinger’s case is another example of a white van that has been making headlines in Baltimore. Gjuandell Effinger posted a Facebook video in which she claimed that a white van tried to kidnap and capture her. The video was shared widely, and the men behind the video even tracked down the white van. Garcia tried to run away when the white van approached her, but the driver struck her shopping cart, and she was rushed into the hospital. In the end, her injuries were too severe and she was pronounced dead at the hospital. Investigators didn’t find any evidence supporting the kidnapping, so it was impossible to determine if the white van was to blame for her death.
The largest area to have the highest number of white van drivers is Essex, followed by Kent and Lancashire. The top five jobs for white van drivers are: builder, delivery driver and shopkeeper. Moreover, one in every twenty White Van Man says he or she has had a romantic encounter inside a white van.
