Police Revoke Peddler's License After Complaints

An alarm company can no longer go door-to-door in Greenville after police revoked its peddler's license.

Police say APX Alarms' license was pulled after they received several complaints from citizens about the company's services. Police say they determined that APX employees were not following the city's peddler's ordinance.

APX is no longer authorized to operate in the city and police ask citizens to call them immediately if they are solicited by anyone from APX Alarms.

The company, which is based in Utah, says it is in the process of reaching out the police department to find out specifics on the complaints.

Stuart Dean told WITN News that the company is now investigating. Dean says APX takes all reports serious and expect their people to to courteous and respectful.

    If you go and google "APX ALARM SCAMS" you will see why Winterville did NOT allow APX people in town even though they sold a lot in Winterville with NO PERMIT shows me & others that this company from Utah has NO respect for out NC laws and Greenville Revoked their Peddlers Permit Thursday. I beleive that that will have ZERO effect on this APX company as they know that all they will get is a fine & booted out of the county so they just go to another cities for a few weeks. IF the NC Alarm Board would DO their JOBS that WE pay them for then APX would NOT get ANY Alarm Permits to sell in ANY town in NC but that's our NC beauracracy at work !! I beleive that IF everyone who was SOLD by APX would COMPLAIN to the NC Alarm Board & the NC Dept of Justice then APX would NEVER come back to NC!

    There is another "company" supposed to be based out of Jacksonville that is going door to door trying to get you to let them in to give you a free bottle of cleaning product(spic and span for me). They came to my home at 10pm one night and insisted on coming in and cleaning my carpets. After several attempts to tell them to go away, my husband and I called the sheriff dept. and learned lots of people in this area have been approached by these people. We believe they are trying to get into your home to take inventory to come back later and already know the layout of your home and where things are. After weeks of searching sheriff deputy's were able to stop these people and they had no permission to be in Pitt County. That has not stopped them. There have been back in our neighborhood 3 times since. There are driving a work minivan,was white now green, 3 people one woman,2 men. Don't let them in your home!!!!!!

    This same company was in Tarboro going through neighborhoods telling residents that there had been several break-ins in the area to try and sell these alarms when the neighborhood hadn't had any break-ins. I know for a fact they were busted in one neighborhood for false information. Way to go GPD, these people are CROOKS!
