(KMOV) – Police are searching for two suspects who reportedly robbed the man at the center of a former St. Louis scandal at gunpoint in Town and Country Friday.
This happened just after 9 p.m. on Cedar Valley Drive, which runs along Interstate 270, south of Clayton.
According to police, Bill Bialczak was coming home from work when he was robbed getting out of his car. Bialczak is the co-owner of St. Louis Metropolitan Towing, the company involved in the towing scandal that forced Joe Mokwa to retire from his position as St. Louis police chief. Officials believe the robbers knew Bialczak is a businessman and expected he would have a bag of money.
At least one of the suspects allegedly had a gun, but Bialczak was not hurt.
The suspects reportedly fled the scene in the direction of Clayton and Ballas after the robbery.
Bialczak pleaded guilty in 2010 to tax evasion and admitted to skimming millions of dollars in cash from his business.
