Crime Alert: Selling Care Packages

Wayzata Police have come in contact with a new organization soliciting from door to door in our city. The name of the organization is FREEDOM UNITED SALES. They are soliciting for donations for Care Packages for military troops. As their information states, they are a FOR-PROFIT business “selling care packages.” They are transient merchants, very similar to the magazine sales organizations we have encountered, staying at local hotels and being dropped off in neighborhoods by van.

 As with any for-profit sales organization, they are required to obtain a permit from the city of Wayzata prior to selling door to door. They have not done so. Please report any solicitors in the area that do not have a city of Wayzata permit to the Wayzata Police Department by dialing 911.
