Today, Rockland can bid adieu to the young men and women who have been going door-to-door to sell magazines, Ramapo police said on Friday.
Detective Lt. Brad Weidel said Paragon Sales sellers were supposed to leave the county for other regions today.Â The sales contingent has been estimated at 40 by police and have been staying at the Holiday Inn in Montebello.
Weidel and the police expect them to back up their vans – with Michigan, Tennessee and Illinois plates – and head off.
In their short time here, four of the sellers have been arrested – threeÂ for soliciting salesÂ without a permit Airmont. They were released on $50 bail by the police pending a hearing in Airmont Justice Court in June. If they don’t show up in court – and that’s the betting odds – they lose their bail money.
Left behind in the county jail was Donnell Preston, 28, of Dayton, Ohio, on felony counts of second-degree attempted murder and second-degree burglary. He is accused of breaking into the hotel room of a 25-year-old fellow seller and attempting to choke her to death. The woman he is accused of attacking is the mother of his two children.
His case will go before a grand jury and his victim will be asked to testify.
