CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Douglas County sheriff’s deputies have arrested seven men from six different states accused of attempting to defraud Carson City residents with door-to-door solicitations for an alleged military organization.

The sheriff’s office says the suspects claimed to be collecting money to send personal care packages to military personnel overseas through a company named, “Something for Soldiers Sales LLC.”

Deputies arrested 24-year-old Cameron Laird of Bartlesville, Oklahoma Saturday evening after he failed to produce a solicitation permit or business license.

They later apprehended six other suspects, including Laird’s 19-year-old brother, Trevor Laird, also of Bartlesville. The others listed hometowns in Arkansas, Arizona, Mississippi, Ohio and Texas.

All seven were booked on suspicion of felony fraud and a variety of other charges.
