Vacuum cleaner salesman draws suspicions
A door-to-door vacuum cleaner salesman has drawn suspicions of residents who say the man's sales pitch doesn't add up.
A Kingston woman called the Kitsap County sheriff's office Thursday to make a report.
The woman said the man appeared at the door selling vacuums, but was using a store-bought cleaner solution brand, rather than the brand sold with the vacuum cleaners.
When asked for a business card to prove his identity, the man could not produce the card.
The woman described the man as "middle eastern."
"I asked (her) what made the man middle eastern and she said because of his accent," a support specialist wrote.
A week before a resident of the Jefferson Beach area, south of Kingston, reported similar suspicious activity and gave "the exact same" description of the vacuum salesman.
