Police: Aggressive salesman targets Salem library patrons


The man was also served a no-trespass order for the library.

The man “related that he only went to the homes to return the cards so the parties would [know] they were no longer in the system,” police wrote. “He was advised that if someone asks him to not come to their home or call them, he should respect their wishes.”

Later on, the officer fielded a phone call from a woman who said she was one of the patrons the man had targeted.

“She related that she originally agreed to meet with [the man], but then changed her mind,” wrote police, adding that he had “kept calling her” after she told him so.

The woman said the man contacted her 25 times in a week and “even came by her home on Sunday night,” wrote police. “Her husband told him to leave that day but ... he kept calling her repeatedly even after being told via phone and email that she was not interested.”

“She relates that last night he called nine times alone.”

The officer again contacted the man again, this time leaving a voice-mail message warning that “he could face harassment charges” if police received any additional complaints.

The officer contacted the office manager for Laura Fisher Agencies, too.

“She related that management had already had a meeting with [him] today and would follow up with the new information,” police wrote.
