Two Minnesota residents have been cited for door-to-door soliciting in the last week in Batavia.

Ryan P. Choinski, 22, and Clara C. Rothstein, 20, were ticketed for soliciting money for military care packages supposedly for something called Vision Packaging, which is not a “legitimate business associated with any charitable organization,” according to Batavia Mayor Jeffery D. Schielke.
