Norwood residents call police about suspicious home security salesman

According to Channel 12, homeowners in Norwood, Spring Grove Village, and College Hill contacted police after a suspicious door-to-door APX Alarm salesman refused to leave his business card or company information while pressuring them to immediately pay cash for the deals he was offering. Residents reported he inquired about the number entrances to their homes and whether they have security systems. Police sent out an alert yesterday. Channel 12’s own investigation found that the man is a salesman for Utah-based APX, which say its workers have employee verification numbers that be checked online. Always be cautious about door-to-door salespeople, and never hesitate to ask for ID.
