You can review my blog posts titled FYI to Wallingford residents regarding some potentially suspicious activity and Southwestern Advantage is the mystery company behind the college girls sales efforts for the additional details on the subject matter below.
The following was printed in the Record Journal on Wednesday May 22, 2013 regarding the two recent blog posts I published on this sales activity as reported by Wallingford residents.
Police are warning residents to be cautious of women going door to door in the area looking for lodging.
Wallingford and Meriden police said they were both aware of the women going door to door in their towns. Detective Lt. Mark Walerysiak, Meriden police spokesman, said the women are staying at a hotel on East Main Street, which is getting too expensive for them so they are looking for lodging in residents’ homes. Walerysiak warned residents not to accommodate the women in their homes and to call police if they come to the door.
Wallingford police said the women were also soliciting educational programs.
For the educational programs, the women were told to register with the town. Police also told them to look for apartments in the classifieds instead of going door to door.
Several Wallingford residents responded on Facebook over the weekend with stories of the women, saying their actions sounded suspicious.
