Grand Theft Tow N Scrap


Author(s):
Abstract:
A loophole in state law allowed Terryon McEachin of Durham to steal 12 cars in 11 days and sell these to scrapyards. Junkyard owners are required to check title and registration except if the car is ten years or older. McEachin took advantage of this exception and used local towing companies to take older model cars to two different scrapyards to cash in.
