The LPD has received numerous calls today in reference to rumors from social media postings regarding door-to-door book sales. Based on these social media rumors, some in the public believe that these sales people are targeting households with children and may attempt to kidnap children, and are calling the LPD. The LPD has received no credible information or evidence that these persons are targeting children, or any calls of legitimate attempted kidnappings regarding these sales persons. These internet social media rumors appear to be merely that: rumors. If the LPD receives any credible information regarding legitimate threats of attempted kidnappings, that information will be released. To date, we have not received such information.
