SEASIDE HEIGHTS - An Ocean County towing company accused of towing cars illegally and over-charging customers, has admitting their bills were too high and will issue refunds to its customers.
APK Towing continues to insist it did not tow anyone improperly.
Residents told Kane In Your Corner earlier today that the towing company removed cars from their private property.
APK Towing said it was asked by Seaside Heights officials to remove cars from roadways in town so cleanup could begin.
Residents also said that the company charged was price gouging, charging residents nearly $1,000 in fees for towing, storage and processing paperwork.
A spokesperson for APK towing admitted the fees were too high, and the company has agreed to charge a flat fee of $250. Anyone who paid more will be issued a refund.
APK Towing is still under investigation by the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office and the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs.
Police are currently investigating the claims. The company's lot has been taped off, as claims against APK Towing are looked into.
