 ENID, Okla.– After a man began selling books in neighborhoods around town, authorities say they started receiving calls from concerned citizens about the company being involved in sex trafficking.

Officers with the Enid Police Department were able to track down the man who was going door-to-door selling educational books.

Police say he had a valid local solicitor’s license and presented a valid State of Oklahoma Tax Permit number.

Officials say the man has no criminal history and works for “The Southwestern Company,” which is accredited through the Better Business Bureau and has an A+ rating.

 Authorities say they have not found anything that links the man or the company to human trafficking.

The police department urges everyone to be cautious when dealing with door-to-door salespersons.

However, this company has followed all the rules and is lawfully selling books within the city limits.

Officials say if you ever feel threatened or believe something to be suspicious, contact the police department so they can investigate.
