From the desk of Sheriff Scott Bradley
On two different dates this month, May 13, and May 14, the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Dept. received reports of four individuals, two males and two females, were coming to area residences acting as Kirby vacuum cleaner sales persons. Items at both residences came up missing as these “sales people’ would do their demonstrations. This investigation appears to reveal that similar incidences have been reported in neighboring counties. If you have had any similar incidents happen, please contact the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Department. There are multiple suspects in this case with arrests expected in the coming weeks.
