One resident tells Townsquare Media NJ that she signed paperwork from the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office that will release her car from the lot APK towed her vehicle to at no charge. She says the Prosecutor’s Office is working with a number people whose vehicles were towed but did not know how many.

TJ Conroy tells the Examiner a similar story: the boat he says was removed from his driveway will be returned to him at no charge as well. He says he was billed $3800 to get it back.

APK’s lot on Route 37 in Toms River remains surrounded by crime scene tape. The Patch of Toms River reports crime scene tape also surrounds a lot in the Bamber Lake section of Lacey.

On Friday one APK employee was fired for “billing mistakes.”   Steven Secare, told the Asbury Park Press that the unidentified employee used the phrase “Office of Emergency Management Ocean County” on billing, charging $150 for “administrative and extra services” and $103 for “subcontractor notice and billing.”

The offices of APK remain closed following a visit from police & investigators on Thursday night. “The Prosecutor’s Office is in charge,” Boyd said. “They served two search warrants, and we are just fact-finding,” Seaside Heights Police Chief Thomas Boyd told the Asbury Park Press.

APK had earlier agreed to charge a flat rate of $250 for residents to release their vehicles and offered refunds for anyone who paid a higher rate.
