CLARK, NJ – Exercise good judgment when approached by door-to-door salespeople, Clark police told residents after officers responded to a report of a suspicious solicitation on Tuesday afternoon.
“Two men were going door to door offering auto dent removal,” Clark Chief of Police Pedro Matos said.
A Clark resident posted a caution to his fellow neighbors on Facebook after a “scraggly looking guy” came to his door offering the automotive service.
Police used the resident’s description of the man and his vehicle, a white Cadillac SUV, to locate the salesman, who was accompanied by another man.
“They were told to leave the area,” Matos said.
Matos encouraged residents who encounter suspicious people in their neighborhood or at their door to contact the Clark Police Department at 732-388-3434.
