Lyndhurst police are expected to decide whether to charge two boys who claimed a man tried to lure them into a van.
The 11-year-olds told police on Monday that a male tried to get them in the van and they provided a description of the interior.
Capt. John Valente tells The Record newspaper police determined the story was false after extensive interviews with the boys and a 27-year-old suspect.
Valente says children have been told to be on the lookout in the wake of six reported cases of attempted luring in northern New Jersey in recent weeks.
