A resident living in the Paseo Del Sol neighborhood in Temecula was concerned about two men selling meat door-to-door Tuesday afternoon.
The concern was legitimate.
“They were selling steaks, chicken and seafood, along with freezers. We do not know what company they represent, but they are in the Temecula neighborhoods often,” the tipster told Patch.
An inquiry was placed by Patch to the City of Temecula, asking if any vendors have been permitted to sell meat products door-to-door in the city.
No vendor permits have been issued by the city for such activity, according to Patrick Richardson, director of community development for the city.
According to Temecula Police Chief Jeffrey Kubel, the department is further researching the matter.
The two men who were allegedly selling the meat are described by the Patch tipster as 30-somethings driving a white Ford Ranger equipped with a freezer. No further descriptions were provided, although the tipster characterized the men as rude.
According to Temecula city code, anyone interested in selling food products in the city must apply for a permit. For details on obtaining a permit, contact the city at 951-694-6444.
