GLEN COVE - Police say they've found the man who tried to lure a teenager into a truck.

Authorities say 79-year-old Glen Cove man Umberto Stanco tried to get a 15-year-old girl into his vehicle while she was walking home on School Street Monday evening. The suspect, who was in a white pickup truck, allegedly offered the teen money to get in the car. She refused.

Detective Lt. John Nagle says the vehicle was caught on the city's new surveillance cameras.

Nagle says the entire school district has been put on alert.

Earlier this month, police say 35-year-old Jason Goode was arrested for exposing himself in a black Jeep in North Massapequa. Two young children were approached by a man in an SUV in Seaford at around the same time.

Stanco is expected to be arraigned on endangering the welfare of a child and harrassment charges in Glen Cove court Wednesday morning.
