Dravosburg officials and McKeesport police are warning residents not to open their doors to salespeople unless they have a "hawker's permit" from the borough.

An email sent Wednesday by the borough said that if someone comes door-to-door, residents should feel free to ask to see the permit, and that if they "cannot produce their permit, please call 911."

On Tuesday, McKeesport police arrested a Florida man after a resident of Scott Drive in Dravosburg reported someone had come to their door selling books on behalf of a charity. James A. Gundrum, 30, of Riviera, Fla., is charged by McKeesport police with theft by deception.

Dravosburg officials said people applying for a "hawker's permit" in the borough are vetted by police before they receive a permit.
