ODESSA - The case is closed on the investigation into a man who allegedly tried to entice 2 Odessa boys to his house.

Odessa police found the man and tells us no crime was committed.

Apparently, he's well known in the neighborhood for helping people.

After interviewing the man, police say he gave the boys a dollar each, and told them to buy a coke while at school.

Last Tuesday, the boys reported they were approached by the man in a black Hummer on their way to school, and told school officials he gave them a dollar to come to his house.

Police say that didn't happen and the man never invited them to his home.
