Crime Watch – The Trophy Club Police Department was notified by a resident about a company calling themselves Total Home Distribution that left a “Sorry We Missed You” door hanger on their front door earlier today while the resident was away. Research by the police department has revealed this is not a legitimate company and they are not attempting to solicit for service, they are scouting homes to be burglarized. If you happen to come in contact with any representative of Total Home Distribution or any other solicitor that does not have a permit, please call the police at 972-434-5500.

Currently (as of 2/27/14), there are five valid solicitation permits that have been issued by the Town: True Green (lawn and landscaping service), Edward Jones (financial planning), Golf Carts Plus (+) (golf cart retailer), Red Oaks Contracting (windows) and TC Mulch (lawn care). The companies above have received solicitation permit from the Town within the last year. The solicitor should have a photo ID solicitation badge on a lanyard, which must be worn by the solicitor while they are in town. Any other solicitors should be reported immediately to the non-emergency dispatch at 972-434-5500.
