December 8, 2013

Sunday 10/08/13 - The Mt. Gilead Police Department is warning village and county residents of people going door to door claiming to sell floor cleaning products. MGPD says these subjects are trying to get into the residences.

They claim to be from Columbus, and the subjects have been described as a young female with short brown/blonde hair and dressed very well. An older female with brown hair dressed decent, and a male subject with short brown hair and black glasses, also dressed well. The vehicle was described as a cream/white large van.

Readers responding to the Sentinel’s Facebook page have commented these people have come around more than once, and also may be driving a green van.

The police department warns if these subjects come to your door, do not open it and call the police immediately.
