The sheriff’s office is warning residents to be wary of pushy door-to-door salespeople.
A woman told police that a man selling meat walked into the Whiteland home where she was baby-sitting last week after she opened the door slightly.
The man set some packaged meat on the floor, sat on the couch and repeatedly asked her to buy meat from him, she said. He reportedly became agitated when she refused and left.
Another meat salesman approached the rural Franklin home of John Bonsett, director of the Johnson County Health Department, without a permit last month.
