Police: Book seller is no threat


BENNINGTON - Police say a man going door-to-door last week that caused an uproar on social media is simply a licensed vendor selling educational books.

The Bennington Police Department posted on its Facebook Friday that officers had identified the man that other Facebook users in the area had raised concerns about.

"He is the authorized male with the approved vendor license selling educational books. We thank our residents for their vigilance," the post by the police department reads.
