Statement as issued Monday by the LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department about recent door-to-door sellers:
We have been receiving several phone calls about these subject’s selling books. (Officers) spoke to these folks today and what they are doing is legitimate. They are trying to put themselves through college by raising money.
There have been rumors going around via Facebook and the community that these folks are attempting to steal children. These rumors are FALSE.
If anyone does have any issues with any salesperson trying to force them to purchase items contact the Lagrange County Sheriff’s Department.
