INDEPENDENCE TOWNSHIP, NJ (Warren County) – A Morris County man was charged by Independence Township police for illegally soliciting.
On October 13, police responded to Ridge Lane after a series of harassing phone calls were made to a resident referencing payment for uncontracted work, police said.
On location, police found that the victim’s driveway was seal coated when there was no contract or agreement that the work was going to be done. The work was solicited as Thomas Gorman, 19, of Flanders allegedly knocked on the door inquiring about the driveway, police said.
Gorman was charged with peddling without a license as soliciting in the township requires a permit. He was released pending a court appearance, police said.
