MLA Liz Kimmins and Slieve Gullion Councillor Mickey Larkin have urged residents to be cautious when answering their front doors to cold callers. 

The advice follows an incident where a house in Dromintee was called at three times in as many weeks by persons offering knives and bedding for sale.  

On the third visit a male attempted to lure the householder out of the house under the pretext of carrying out repairs and cleaning.

Fortunately, the lady declined his offer. Following each of the incidents the cold callers left the area without knocking any other doors. On two occasions they left the street in southern registered vans. 

Councillor Larkin has spoken to the PSNI in relation to the incidents.
