Police searching for water filtration salesman

By Eric Flack – bio | e-mail

Louisville, KY  (WAVE) - Police are looking for a man we first told you about in a WAVE 3 Troubleshooter investigation. Larry Foster is accused of selling water filtration systems for thousands of dollars, and then never delivering the product.

Now, Indiana State Police have joined Louisville Metro police in the search for Foster. A man who left a bad taste in the mouth of customers from here to Evansville.

Customers paid as much as $2700 for water filtration systems that are supposed to clean and soften water throughout the home. But after signing contracts and handing over the money, many of Foster's clients told police they never received the water filters.

Sources now tell us an investigator with Indiana State Police is looking for Foster, in connection with at least 5 families in the Evansville area who say they were taken.

LMPD is looking to question Foster about similar complaints in this area. And it's not his first run in with the law either. Two years ago Foster was convicted of ten counts of theft in Pike County, Indiana for doing the same thing he's accused of doing now.
