This past week many Collinsville residents have been stopped by a series of men often carrying clipboards who attempted to convince the homeowners to buy into either a security system test, pest control or weed control. There may have been other stories people have been told by these men. Often they are hard to get rid of and begin with a fake story. Some even want to come in, ostensibly to do a check of some sort. They have been in several Collinsville neighborhoods.
The Collinsville police have warned everyone that if one of these guys is around your place or rings your doorbell to please call the police.
