The Livingston County Sheriff’s Department has released more information related to reports of a suspicious person attempting to sell satellite television services in the area.  Sheriff Steve Cox said his office determined the individual or group of people had been lawfully employed by New Star Communications LLC.  The third party company is based in Utah.

The sheriff’s office launched an investigation late last week after numerous homeowners reported encountering a questionable man trying to sell Dish Network services.  Cox said there is not enough evidence to suggest whether or not the individual was casing homes or locations for other purposes.
