A Roxbury woman allegedly is refusing to pay a bill from a Route 25 auto repair shop despite taking the vehicle from the shop’s parking lot after work was done on it.
On Jan. 28, the woman’s vehicle reportedly stopped working at the intersection of Route 25 and Judd Road. Police at the scene called the Hill ’N Dale shop in Monroe to tow the vehicle due to the dangerous situation, and the car’s owner went to the shop with an officer.
The woman then asked the shop to do some work on the car to determine the problem, police said, and on Jan. 29 she was informed by the shop owner that the bill for the tow and repair work was $119.
On the next day, however, the Hill ’N Dale owner reportedly noticed the vehicle was gone from his lot but the bill hadn’t been paid.
He contacted the Roxbury woman to discuss the situation, and she told him her husband had taken the vehicle, according to the report.
Police said when officers contacted the woman, she was “uncooperative” and “argumentative.” She was told by officers to pay the outstanding the bill, but reportedly did not directly respond to that request.
