SLED investigating Cole’s Towing

News

(WSPA) — The S.C. Law Enforcement Division has confirmed the agency has an ongoing investigation into Cole’s Towing. 

The business was in the news recently after Cole’s Towing owner and an employee were arrested while attempting to tow a car on Saturday in Spartanburg County. 

The 7th Circuit Solicitor conflicted the prosecution of those charges to the Attorney General’s Office for a conflict of interest involving an employee. 

7 News also learned that the 7th Circuit Solicitor conflicted a case to the Attorney General in May. In that letter, the solicitor states he’s enclosed case files from SLED, Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office, and Spartanburg Police Department. 

SLED confirmed that it was asked to investigate. A spokesperson for the agency said they could not comment on the ongoing investigation. 

When we reached out to Cole’s attorney, he stated he was not aware of the SLED investigation.
