Officer Hurd contacted a subject aggressively marketing magazines and harassing residents in the 2200 block of Vista St SE. A solicitor’s license is required in Olympia for this sort of activity. The subject was advised he could not conduct sales without a license. Aggressive magazine sales people seem to be an annual problem.
We ask that you call dispatch if you have an experience with anyone conducting this business who acts inappropriately. The magazine sales could be fraudulent or the person could be casing the neighborhood for future criminal activity.
