Beware of door to door salesman

Alert message sent 17/07/2020 15:53:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

We want to alert people living in the Westbury area to a door to door salesman.  

We have received reports of a man, going by the name of Martti Kask, trying to sell educational materials to people on their door-steps. 

A number of local residents have told us of their concerns about his sales technique which can allegedly be "forceful" at times.   

Acting Inspector Kevin Harmsworth said:  "We are aware of this man and his actions, following some reports to us from concerned people living in the community. 
"His timetable varies and will call on people anytime from midday until evening. 
"I would encourage local residents to ask any door to door sellers for identification and if you need to return into your home, keep the front door closed. 
"If there are any suspicions please call Wiltshire Police at the time so we can send an officer to verify the male's identity and if necessary take action.
"Even if police are called afterwards, it still allows us to accurately record when and where the male has been active, so we can focus our local patrols accordingly."  

Crime prevention advice around unexpected callers can also be found on our website:
