An Edgewood subdivision resident called dispatch Friday night to report a man had come to her door to ask where children in the neighborhood lived.

Bardstown Police officers reported to the area around 9 p.m. and interviewed a second person who reported the man said he was selling children’s books, Maj. Ray Lewis said.

Several police officers searched the area but were unable to find the man, who was described as a white male in his 50s, driving a white truck with possible Georgia plates.

“Looks like he got out of there quick,” Lewis said, noting that despite the man’s reputed explanation, police still found the activities suspicious.
