ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) - A St. Louis City tow-truck driver and another man have been arrested for allegedly stealing from cars towed to the city’s towing lot.
Nathaniel Davis, 62, and Treron Marshall, 35, are both charged with felony stealing. Davis has worked for the city’s towing division since 2007. According to charging documents, the two were caught operating a city-owned flatbed tow truck and removing items from the tow lot. Police said they found stereos, cell phones, GPS devices, clothing, auto parts and hand tools in the bed of the tow truck. According to police, Davis and Marshall admitted that they entered and stole items from vehicles located on the City Towing Lot on Hall Street.
“There is such thing as public trust and integrity and if these accusations are true then I am really angry,” said Mary Ellen Ponder, St. Louis’ Operations Director. “This is not the type of thing we tolerate.”
City officials tell News 4 that a foreman in the city’s towing division is also a part of the investigation, but has not yet been charged through the Circuit Attorney’s office.
Right now St. Louis Police are trying to figure out which stolen items belong to which vehicles. Police said that process could take several weeks.
