The Brown County Sheriffs Office would like to make the public aware of some suspicious activity that has been reported in the southern part of Brown County.

There have been a number of reports that a white van with several occupants are going door to door representing themselves as KIRBY vacuum cleaners salespeople. The female has been described as being in her 30’s with blond hair in a pony tail and the male driver either long hair or beard or both. Concerned residents are reporting that at times it appears that this van speeds away from houses when they notice that county residents are observing them more carefully.

While we are not wanting to alarm anyone or accuse these people of any wrongdoing, the way they are acting and trying to conduct business not only makes residents suspicious, it has caused concern for several of our county residents.

I have not been contacted by ANY KIRBY salespeople stating they would be selling in this county. If you do notice this vehicle please give us a call as I would like to speak with these people personally to make sure they are credible.

As always, I appreciate the cooperation we have from the people in Brown County.
