HERRIMAN — Police arrested a solicitor Wednesday after residents complained the man was too aggressive.
Aaron Howell, 38, was arrested for investigation of failing to leave when asked while soliciting, disorderly conduct and trespassing. Howell was booked in the Salt Lake County Jail.
Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal said Howell came with an out-of-town group and obtained a 10-day soliciting permit to sell a cleaning product in Herriman.
Police received calls Tuesday and Wednesday from residents complaining the salesmen were being too aggressive, Hoyal said.
“They would come up with several different reasons as to why they wouldn’t leave and why they wanted people to buy their products,” he said.
Herriman has an ordinance requiring solicitors to leave when asked. Hoyal said residents should be aware of their local ordinances in regards to soliciting.
“If anybody feels uncomfortable about any solicitors, they don’t have to answer the door," he said. "They can shut the door, and if people don’t leave, call the police.”
