WASHINGTON COUNTY -- Washington County residents might be able to get out of alarm system contracts they purchased from unlicensed salespeople.
"It would not surprise me if we'd have to let people out of those contracts," Alex Dunn, the chief operating officer of APX Alarm Security Systems, said Wednesday.
For weeks, APX salespeople blanketed neighborhoods in Hagerstown and other parts of Washington County and knocked on doors.
APX, which is based in Utah, later found out the sales group in the Hagerstown area was from Virginia and didn't have licenses required in Maryland.
"As soon as we found out, we told them to leave (Maryland)," Dunn said.
The company didn't replace the salespeople with properly licensed salespeople.
Dunn didn't know how many security systems were sold in Washington County.
He said APX will void local contracts if it has to.
"The law is what it is and we'll comply with the law," he said.
