Peddler’s Permits Required to Sell Items


The Starke County Sheriff’s Department has received several calls about two men going door-to-door selling magazines.

Officials told WKVI News that the individuals were asked to go to the county auditor’s office to obtain a peddler’s permit to sell the items. A resident has the right to ask a salesman for a peddler’s permit before any sales pitch is made or before any transaction is final.

If you have any questions about proper authority for these types of sales, contact the sheriff’s department or the auditor’s office in Starke County.
