FARMINGTON – Police are asking the public for help in identifying a woman who allegedly stole cash from a homeowner while trying to sell magazines door to door this weekend. Police are also asking that if anyone has purchased a magazine subscription from Atlantic Circulation, Inc. to please call the Farmington Police Department at 778-6311 and ask for Officer Ed Hastings.
Hastings said he received a complaint from a homeowner who said a woman who came into her home and, at some point while she was trying to sell her a magazine subscription, took a stack of cash off the table. The homeowner noticed the cash was missing after the sales woman left and called police.
“I just want to give people a heads up,” Hastings said. “I don’t want them to get sucked into this.” The sales woman said she was trying to earn points for a trip, but Hastings said after contacting area high schools and the college, said he found that Atlantic Circulation, Inc. is not affiliated with local fund raising at the schools.
