Owner of No Limit Towing granted bond; placed on house arrest
RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - The owner of No Limit Towing was granted bond following a court appearance Monday morning.
Sherral Crawley faces 16 indictments for allegedly stealing cars that her business towed.
During Monday’s court hearing, a judge granted Crawley a $75,000 secured bond. However, she is placed on Home Electronic Monitoring (HEM) with the exception of court hearings and meetings with her attorney.
Crawley was last in court over a week ago. During that court appearance, Crawley claimed she didn’t steal anything and argued this should be a civil case.
She was denied bond by a judge who said she already had 22 felony convictions. Crawley is currently facing 16 counts of grand larceny and one count of obtaining money by false pretenses.
Police started investigating Crawley last year for complaints about illegal towing practices, including overcharging people and towing cars from private lots.
However, during the investigation, police say they discovered Crawley was technically stealing some of the cars and selling them for a profit.
Officers raided No Limit Towing earlier this month and tried to arrest Crawley.
She eventually turned herself in but claimed she did not know these charges existed or that anyone was looking for her.
Crawley’s mother and fiance were in the courtroom. NBC12 asked them for comment but they declined.
Crawley posted bond and was released from prison on Tuesday, Aug. 29. She is due back in court on Sept. 5.
