FENTON, Mo (KMOV.com) – St. Louis County Police are searching for suspicious solicitors going door-to-door in Fenton.
On Thursday, a woman reported a solicitor came to her home asking for samples of her carpet in return for a box of Gain fabric softener.
“The solicitor was persistent about getting inside. She needed to make this sale,” said St. Louis County Police Officer Aaron Dilks. “But what else was suspicious was there were two guys out in a car, waiting for her [the solicitor] to come out to the car.”
Police say the solicitor did not have a license.
Officers are asking citizens to look for a 1994 Oldsmobile with the license plate number “P9HJK5.” Anyone with information should contact authorities.
