A Washington Tacoma towing company is being accused of illegally selling an impounded car belonging to a serviceman deployed on the USS John C. Stennis aircraft carrier.
The News Tribune reported the state Attorney General’s Office claims in a lawsuit filed this week that Burns Towing never checked if the owner of the car was in the military, a check required by state and federal laws.
Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Alex Vaughn had parked his Chevrolet Malibu at a Tacoma apartment complex in March before being deployed.
Burns Towing did not immediately return the newspaper’s call seeking comment.
