Grocery Pickup Pamphlet

This unprecedented crisis brings out a lot of good in people.  Unfortunately you have to be on guard for folks who may not be on the up and up.

The Peru Police Department has been made aware of a flyer posted at a senior housing complex offering grocery delivery for a fee.  Deputy Chief Robert Pyszka says he contacted the number on the flyer and an “Austin” refused to ever give his last name saying officers would find it out once he applied for a solicitor’s license which is a requirement.  The potential scammer was told to stop leaving pamphlets until receiving an approved license.

According to the pamphlet, the delivery service charges fees from $15 for a grocery bill under $50 to 15% for a grocery bill exceeding $300.  It also offers prescription pick-up services.
