JEFFERSON PARISH, La. — Police have arrested a Fluent Home salesperson after he allegedly forced himself into a home here while selling burglar alarms.
The homeowner told authorities that Jens Peterson, 20, arrived at her home on May 16 and cracked her door open and let himself inside the residence. Once inside, Peterson put his hands on the resident’s shoulders and began asking about her home security system, New York Daily News reports.
The woman claims that after she pointed her security system out to Peterson, he started pressing its buttons and refused a request for him to leave. The salesman finally left after someone in the living room approached him, according to the arrest report.
When police arrived on the scene, Peterson, along with two other Fluent Home employees, were inside a vehicle parked nearby the home.
The Utah-based Peterson has been charged with unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling and peddling with no permit.
Canadian-based Fluent Home is a summer sales model security company with offices in Provo, Utah as well as Edmonton and Vancouver, Canada.
