    ALLIED METAL/HWY. 301 SOUTH — A woman said two men sold her vehicle for scrap. She had left the car with one man and he never fixed it, she said. Instead, he removed the speakers, battery, alternator and other items before junking it, she said. The offender told deputies the vehicle had been at his place three months and the owner refused to pay for repairs or pick it up, so he sold it. He did not go through proper magistrate procedures to legally do so, and deputies told him he had to repay the junk yard for what he was given for the vehicle. The metal yard agreed to pay the legal owner for the car when the offender repaid them.
