On the afternoon of January 12, 2013 five subjects were arrested for solicitation without a permit. A deputy responded to a complaint of several subjects soliciting door to door in Centerville. The complainant stated that the subjects were attempting to sell Kirby brand vacuums. The deputy located the subjects on Darwin Road. The subjects were asked to provide their St. Mary Parish permit. The permit provided was expired. All five subjects were released on a summons.
St. Mary Parish residents are reminded that door to door sales operations such as these are illegal without a permit from the parish. The municipalities have similar ordinances.
In the event of any suspicious activity residents should never hesitate to contact their local law enforcement agency. The SMPSO can be reached at 985-384-1622 or 337-828-1960.
