The City of Golden Valley was recently informed about posts on a local social media site regarding an alleged bank robbery in the community. That information is not accurate, according to Police Chief Virgil Green.
"We take misinformation seriously, especially where there are allegations about a very serious crime such as a bank robbery," said Green. "Rumors, misinformation, and false information on social media do not help any community."
"Transparency is very important between the Golden Valley Police Department and the community we serve," adds Green, "and we encourage anyone who has questions regarding information on social media to contact us for clarification."
