LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Some residents in the Carlyss area would like to see door-to-door sales banned in Calcasieu Parish. They took their concerns to Calcasieu Police Jurors tonight.

Residents suspect certain men who have gone door to door in their neighborhood posing as sales men are really casing homes.

Amy Trouth says she and her neighbors want door to door peddling banned.

Police jurors in committee agreed to ask their attorney to review their ordinances on house -to-house peddling and see what changes might be made to better protect the public.

A draft amendment may be presented April 29th.
