Cumberland Township Police would like to share updated information regarding the suspicious person/solicitation that was sent out on Nixle.com a few days ago.

Officers as well as Twp State Constables have stopped and made contact with this person. He has been warned not to conduct any business without a permit. The Chief of police has ordered officers to charge MEAD if he is caught selling anything without a license in the Township again.

Please share all of the following information below with any children/teenagers who may be home alone while parents/adults are at work. There have been reports of children/teens being asked personal questions about how long their parents would be gone, etc.

The suspicious/soliciting person's info is as follows:
Name: RICHARD MEAD
6'2" - approx 170 pounds - white male - 24 yrs old - short brown hair
Driving a Silver Ford Taurus with South Dakota license plate: 49K-P50

MEAD has stopped in and talked to Twp Supervisors and stated that he plans on being around town until this Saturday 6-13-2009.

MEAD DOES NOT HAVE A PERMIT TO SOLICIT BUSINESS IN CUMBERLAND TOWNSHIP!!!

*** If MEAD comes to your house:
Immediately ask to see a permit to solicit (issued by the Township). If he can not produce one, THEN DO NOT DO ANY BUSINESS WITH HIM. Do not allow him in your house. Ask MEAD to leave your property. If he refuses, call 911 and police will remove him from your property.

*** Contact police if MEAD attempts to sell anything to you in the Township without displaying a permit. Contact police immediately if MEAD comes to your property after dark, as it is illegal to solicit after sunset (or 6:00 pm, whichever comes first) or before 9:30 AM - EVEN WITH A PERMIT ***

Call 911 if any of the above conditions exist.
