SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Two vacuum salesmen didn't exactly close the deal at a recent home demonstration in central New York. State police charged the Syracuse men with a misdemeanor after a $1,300 Sealy latex foam mattress was damaged. Trooper Andy Davis said the damage occurred during a demonstration Monday at a home in Richfield Springs. Davis wouldn't elaborate on what was done to the mattress.
Davis said the men were both at the home when police arrived and were trying to save the situation. They were charged with reckless endangerment of property.
The mattress owner is looking for reimbursement.
