GLEN ROCK, N.J. — An individual dressed in a bear costume with a GoPro camera strapped to its chest and a large dog in tow was observed standing outside of a Glen Rock elementary school at afternoon dismissal time on Friday.

A concerned parent reported the person to Glen Rock police, which dispatched a uniformed patrol officer and a uniformed patrol supervisor to investigate.

Responding units located the "bear with dog" two blocks away from the school, and identified him as a local juvenile male.

He was interviewed and then escorted back to his home and released to his mother.

The intent of standing in front of the school dressed in a bear costume with an attached GoPro and dog was not made public.
