The man that Ottawa Sheriff's deputies warned people about in Spring Lake Tuesday admitted that he actually did drive up to some young girls at a bus stop  and offered them candy and a ride in his car.

Deputies say the 70-year-old man appears to have been an honest Good Samaritan who said he was worried about the girls standing in the cold wind.

He said one was not dressed warmly and one was crying.

Deputies say the girls did the right thing by calling 911 and putting the community on the alert.
