Pictures: PAUL CARRACHERPOLICE have not charged a woman who was under investigation for taking photos of children in exchange for chocolates at Horsham’s Carols by Candlelight on Sunday.

Horsham detectives interviewed the woman when they located her near the Wimmera River on Monday.

Detective Sergeant Chris Grigg said no offence was committed.

“We located a female last night and we have spoken with her at length,” he said.

“After ascertaining what she had with her it was determined no offence had occurred.

“We explained to her the community concerns, but she was adamant that she just loves children.”

The woman was not Horsham-based and lefttown after she was interviewed.

Detective Sergeant Grigg said communitymembers had to respect the wishesof parents when interacting withchildren.

“They need to take into consideration, what if it wastheir own kids?” he said.

“Think how parents of the kids involved would feel if the actions were seen?

“It was clear community members were upset, as seen by Facebook running rampant.”

He said photographers who wanted to take photos of children should always check with parents beforehand.

Concerned concert-goers took to social media after the woman was spotted taking photos with children at the carols.

Pictures of the woman and her car were shared on Facebook as police investigated the incident.

Carols coordinator Simon Dandy said the issuehad been raised with security by a member of the public.

“Our head of security was informed about it. He spoke with the lady in question and asked her to stop and she then ran off,” he said.

“From our perspective it was great that it was dealt with straight away. Our security team was on the ball which is reassuring to everyone.”
