An officer responded to the area of Forest Grove on Wednesday, October 5, after receiving complaints about door to door soliciting. The officer located and met with the solicitor, a 20 year old male, from Wheaton, Illinois. The solicitor was issued a notice to appear in court for soliciting without a permit.
A few minutes later, two additional solicitors were stopped by an officer, near Loves Park Dr. & Garden Plain. Both solicitors, 19 & 24 years of age, out of West Chicago & Schaumburg, were also issued notices to appear in court for soliciting without a permit.
All three individuals were soliciting for Direct Energy. Direct Energy representatives do not currently hold permits to solicit door to door in Loves Park.
