Police warn of man posing as salesman

State police are warning residents of Carroll County about the suspicious behavior of a man who is presenting himself as a door-to-door vacuum cleaner salesman.

A resident of the 4000 block of Bartholow Road reported that a man about 25 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing about 200 pounds knocked on his door at 6 p.m. Wednesday, police said.

The homeowner said that the man attempted to enter the house to demonstrate a small vacuum cleaner but that he refused to admit him.

The homeowner told police that the man said he was going door to door in the Eldersburg area.

He then reportedly went to an older, white station wagon wittemporary Virginia tags and drove away with two other men.
