Stafford, Spotsy authorities issue alerts regarding ‘suspicious activity’
Stafford authorities are warning residents to be on the lookout for a group going door-to-door selling cleaning products and services.
Sheriff’s spokesman Bill Kennedy said police have received several calls about the group from residents in the southern part of the county. He said no crimes have been committed, but members of the group have made residents suspicious.
Kennedy said the people claim to be opening a cleaning shop on White Oak Road or in Frederickburg. The group includes a pregnant woman, a 5 feet 6 inch white man in his 50′s with slicked-back hair and a 6 feet 4 inch balding black man in his 50′s.
The group has been traveling in a dark-colored SUV. Anyone who has suspicions about solicitors is asked to request to see a county solicitor’s permit or call the Sheriff’s Office at 658-4400.
The Spotsylvania Sheriff’s Office has also posted a similar warning on its Facebook page, warning county residents to be on the lookout for suspicious activity.
