A white panel van with the words “Free Candy” emblazoned on the side and smeared handprints creeped out enough people in Sacramento that KHTK just had to report on it (via Boing Boing).

The van appeared in neighborhoods around the area — even parked next to a school bus — when residents became concerned.

“It just felt like they were trying to track kids and it just gave me a creepy feeling,” said the mother of Lawrence Bellow, 12, who took a picture of the van.

The news station tracked down the owner, who said they were heading to Burning Man in Nevada.

“It was a joke. It’s nice to know that if was there actually a creepy white van around that people would be taking notice of that,” said a friend of the owner.
