Tow truck company operator faces 31 counts of forgery for widespread deceptive practices

For Immediate Release

Sept. 27, 2019

A Kansas City tow truck operator faces multiple forgery counts after a police investigation uncovered a widespread scheme set up by the defendant to illegally tow vehicles from Kansas City parking lots, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

Allen T. Bloodworth, dob: 10/12/1977, faces 31 counts of Forgery for illegally towing vehicles between April 7, 2017 and Nov. 17, 2017.*

"“Area residents of East Zone neighborhoods were frequent victims of the deceptive business practices found in this criminal complaint. Though all individuals deserve protection from these deceptive practices, many of Bloodworth’s victims already face great financial hardship, exacerbating their injury.” Prosecutor Baker stated. 

“I'd like to thank the property crimes detectives in Kansas City's East and North Patrols who assisted greatly in this investigation," Baker added.

According to court records, the defendant operates a private towing company, Private Party Impound LLC, located in the 5600 block of E. 31st in Kansas City. An investigation by Kansas City police detectives found that the defendant and his employees were illegally towing abandoned vehicles from private property. To do so, the defendant or his employees completed a state-required Department of Revenue form that requires the name of a property or security manager who is authoring and witnessing the tow. The investigation found those forms were used 280 times in Kansas City to tow vehicles. They were signed with two names of area apartment or property managers, who told police they had not given permission to the defendant to use their names for the tows uncovered as part of this investigation.

The case remains under investigation and anyone with information regarding the towing practices of the defendant or his company, Private Party Impound LLC, can contact KCPD at (816) 234-5000.
