Dublin Police Services confirmed that two men who had been soliciting in the Dublin Ranch area were arrested on Oct. 11 after being contacted by deputies.
Patch reader, Rowena, wrote to Dublin Patch about a suspicious situation Thursday evening:
"Thieves came in at 5.50 p.m. tonight to our garage and rifled through car parked in garage and car parked on driveway (unlocked as we were getting groceries out!). Man wearing black hoodie sped away with driver friend in white suv/van (new) with dealer plates.
Just ten minutes before someone had been knocking on doors with a clip board trying to sell something."
According to Walters, the men had "a permit with no signature from police authorizing the permit" and they had no identification on them.
"The solicitors were contacted down the street and two of them had warrants for their arrest," commented Walters. "People should contact us if there are solicitors in their area- especially if they cannot produce a permit or any identification. Do not open the screen door to see their permit or ID, keep it locked. Also, be aware of other solicitors because the solicitor at the front door may be distracting the home owner at the front door while the others enter the rear of the residence to commit burglary."
