The Village of Westbury is holding a special meeting Monday to answer questions and brief residents about a spate of suspicious incidents that have been reported recently.

The meeting will be at 8 p.m. at Village Hall (235 Lincoln Place).

During the past weeks, residents have reported seeing people knock on doors purportedly to sell items such as window cleaners and driveway sealant. But they appear not to have supplies of what they are selling.

Two vehicles — a light-silver Chevrolet Astro van and a red Toyota pickup — have been associated with the incidents.

Police said the door-knocking could be an attempt to see whether a home is occupied or to case a house. They have intensified patrols, though no burglaries have been directly related to this reported activity, police said.

In a note to residents, Mayor Peter I. Cavallaro urged residents to be vigilant but not to over-report incidents to police unless suspicious behavior has been witnessed.
