Ridgeland man accused of solicitation without permit in Rankin County | Crime
RANKIN COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - A Ridgeland man was arrested Wednesday afternoon for violation of Rankin County’s Transient Business Ordinance.
Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey says Arlo Raynald Taylor has a previous conviction for violating the county ordinance earlier this year.
Deputies responded to multiple calls Tuesday about a man going to residences on White Road near Florence wearing a black leader jacket and driving a brown Tahoe.
The man was reportedly telling homeowners he wanted to clean their carpets. The homeowners told the suspect to leave.
Bailey said in one case the suspect went to the back door of a residence and knocked on the door.
Detailed information and video of the suspect and vehicle helped authorities track down the man they believe is responsible.
Taylor is being held on $500,000 bond due to his previous conviction. He will appear before a Rankin County Justice Court Judge.
The Rankin County Transient Business Ordinance requires any business conducting door-to-door sales in the unincorporated areas of Rankin County to apply for a permit with the sheriff’s department, according to Bailey.
