Subscription canceled for solicitors in AL

Three men were arrested in Alabama for going to door-to-door, selling magazines without a business license.

"There are certain rules they have to go by," Captain Brad Mason said. "They were made aware of these. They didn't comply with the rules and so that's why they were arrested the second day they were soliciting."

If someone plans to be involved in door-to-door solicitations, they need to be aware of the strict requirements that come with it. It may seem simple to start this work, but you first may need to go through things like background checks and fingerprinting. Every time police get involved in a business activity – like they do for second-hand dealing – there can be very tough guidelines.
