MONROE, CT — A complaint about a man walking door-to-door on Wiltan Drive Thursday morning led to an arrest of the Frontier employee and an infraction for his manager, who did not apply for a peddler permit, according to police.
Plainville police had a warrant for the arrest of the 48-year-old employee for failure to appear in court, according to the report.
As part of the peddler permit process, Monroe Police Lt. Stephen Corrone said police vet the people who go door-to-door to make sure there are no issues. If the Frontier manager had applied for a permit, Corrone said police would have learned about the warrant before the employee went into town neighborhoods.
