Woman Steals Repo Truck from Agent at Knife Point

Columbia, SC – June 26,2012 – Repo Man, 6 feet tall and 250lbs. Woman, 5 foot nothing and 100 and nothing soaking wet. Knife, the equalizer. At least that’s what it came down to when a woman decided to turn a knife on the Repo Man and then proceeded to steal his truck.

The Richland County Sheriff’s Department has reported that an employee of Allied Finance Adjusters Member, Big Foot Recovery, was attempting repossession of a Jeep Grand Cherokee from an apartment complex when he encountered an irate woman.

The woman, who has yet to be identified, reportedly approached the 6′ 250 pound Repo Man with a knife and demanded that he leave her car alone. The 35 year old Repo Man reportedly advised the woman that he was there to repossess her Jeep for past due payments..

According to police, the woman, then cut the tow truck straps attached to her vehicle. As the Repo Man ran toward the truck, the woman turned the knife on him and got into his tow truck and drove off.

As the woman drove away in the tow truck, the Jeep rolled off of the tow truck coming to a stop in the road.

Shortly after, a search commenced by law enforcement  who located the tow truck about a half mile away at a car wash. The truck reportedly sustained approximately $30K in damages primarily because the boom arm had been dragged across the pavement.

Police did not provide a name or description of the woman but she is reportedly still on the lam.

  1. Jim,
    I apologize if you felt I misrepresented this story. I only had materials I found online to draw from and doubted you would entertain a call from me at 1am EST, so I ran with what was already reported.
    I thought it was pretty clear based upon the signage on the tow trucks, that this guy talking had no affiliation with your company.
    As far as the physical description goes, I as well had no way to know how wrong they, and now myself, were.
    If it comes as any consolation, your guy did the right things and things seem to have just gotten crazy through no fault of his own. Sorry about the damaged truck and hope the best of luck to you all.

  2. Goes to show you anyone can join Allied…. He should have left when she told him to an the rest would not have happened. Can we say Breach Of Peace. And not one of the self loaders will cost 30,000 because the lift was dragged across the pavement.

  3. $30K in damages primarily because the boom arm had been dragged across the pavement??? That must have been some kind of gold plated diamond encrusted boom! or more likely someone looking to make money out of a bad situation. Think twice about that, ever hear of karma?

  4. Hello, my name is Jim, and I am the Co-Owner of Bigfoot Recovery. I would like to take a few moments to respond to this news story that was published by a local station. First and foremost, Bigfoot Recovery is not in any way affiliated with the company shown in the news clip. We do not know them, we do not work with them, and quite frankly we have never heard of them. After I would not provide a comment about the incident to the news station after repeated calls to my office yesterday, or talk about the “dangers of my job” (their words, not mine) they searched and found a self proclaimed “repo man” who was all to happy to get his 30 seconds of fame. Anyone who has trained and certified in this industry will immediately recognize some of the highly questionable and in some cases illegal methods he describes. Secondly, the physical description provided in this news story is incorrect. My employee is younger, 5’6″ and 140 pounds. The description given is my height and weight and age. I am listed as a secondary victim as owner of the company and the truck. I suppose it makes for better “news entertainment” if it was a “big guy” who was assaulted by the smaller woman with a knife. The most important thing is that my employee is safe and unharmed and the assailant will be prosecuted to the fullest extent the law will allow. Thank you for your time, and have a great day.
