HUNTINGDON, Tenn. — Huntingdon police are warning residents of a new scam involving door-to-door sales.

Individuals are going door-to-door asking residents to buy fruit to support the Huntingdon High School band, Director of Public Safety Walter Smothers said.

Smothers said the individuals are showing a piece of paper that appears to be from the school and are asking residents to pay for fruit in cash.

The school band is not currently selling fruit, Smothers said.
