Not to hijack this thread: We see a lot of "salesmen" during this time of year. They come to homes in the early evening, but they aren't really selling anything. They are looking in your home and casing it to see if 1. You are home or not 2. If you have stuff they want to take 3. If you have a dog or alarm system.
We put up a No Solicitors sign and they will still come to the door. I have called the police numerous times to report these incidents. I do believe that Scarlett is among the best deterrants we have.
If you have a non-emergency telephone number for your local police, you can report suspicious activity, even when a crime is not in progress. Because of the home invasion epidemic in our area, they will dispatch an officer if they can to come to the area and look for the person.
You did the right thing calling 911, obviously. Riley did her job too.
