Sidney, Iowa Police Chief Todd Poppie says the man is an older gentleman who just wanted to give the candy to the children Wednesday. He says he spoke to the man and explained that the children could be leery if they don't know him and that it could be concerning to parents.

Poppie tells the Council Bluffs newspaper that officers checked with residents in the southwest Iowa town and they confirmed the man didn't mean any harm.

Poppie says residents said the man has been doing it for a long time.

The man's name has not been released.
