The RNC says members of it's patrol services have located the male and verified that he does in fact work for a company in Nova Scotia conducting surveys and collecting data in towns and cities across the country.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC) has issued a public advisory to homeowners in the Torbay area in relation to a suspicious person going door to door, conducting a survey.
The RNC said in a news release, it has come to the attention of the town of Torbay that a man has been going to homes in the area of Clement’s Lane off Indian Meal Line, stating that he is conducting a survey for Metrobus/ public transit on behalf of the town of Torbay.
The town of Torbay and Metrobus wish to advise the public that they are not undertaking any such survey and homeowners should be wary of this person.
The man is described as being 50 to 60 years of age and having a scruffy appearance. He has been seen driving a grey Chevrolet Cruz and is carrying an iPad. Residents in the area have reported that he is knocking on resident’s front and back doors and has been very aggressive when speaking to them.
The RNC advises residents that if approached at your home by a door-to-door sales person, homeowners should ask for official identification and contact the organization directly, prior to allowing any stranger into their homes or giving them personal information or money.
