Seaside residents reclaim vehicles towed during Sandy
NEW YORK -- Residents began reclaiming vehicles that were towed during Superstorm Sandy free of charge Wednesday under an agreement reached by New Jersey's Consumer Affairs Division.
The state has launched an investigation into whether APK Auto Repair and Towing engaged in price gouging. Some people claimed they were asked to pay as much as $900 to get their vehicles back.
APK will release all vehicles to registered owners that were towed from Seaside Heights between noon on Oct. 27 and midnight Nov. 9.
Investigators were available at each of the company's three lots.
The company does not admit any wrongdoing under terms of the agreement.
But Don Buckley says the company snatched his gray Hyundai from his driveway in Seaside Heights.
