Santa Clarita Sheriff: Towing Practices sign now

City of Bell Salaries? How about the purposeful routing of business resulting in hundreds of thousands of dollars per year?

Upon meeting with Captain Becker of the Santa Clarita Sheriffs Department to inquire why the Department has engaged in the illegal routing of business and allowed a single company to monopolize the industry, Captain Becker replied, Its easier; however, allowing an officer to act as judge and jury might be easier, but is certainly not legal either.

Originally, the Santa Clarita Sheriff attempted to quiet the questions of their conspiracy by claiming to utilize three towing companies; however, upon obtaining internal documentation to substantiate in fact that only one towing company is being used, the Sheriffs Department had to admit their original mistruth.

Obviously, there is an underlying reason as to why the Sheriffs Department continues to favor just one company and is willing to go to extended lengths to hide and justify the fact.

Santa Clarita Mayor Laurene Weste and City Manager Kenneth R. Pulskamp have declined to discuss the issue; even going so far as scheduling a meeting, only to later cancel.

The Santa Clarita Sheriffs Department has engaged in and established a pattern, which has involved the purposeful routing of tow calls to a single local business for more than 20 years, Wolfs Towing of Santa Clarita.

This improper relationship between Wolfs Towing and the Santa Clarita Sheriff is not only illegal, but also encourages corruption and improprieties.

In a 24 month review, the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriffs Department (SCV Sheriff) generated 1095 tow calls; of those Wolfs Towing received 1091, 99.6\% of calls generated, and hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Despite several attempts, the SCV Sheriff refuses to open their towing calls to competition; thereby restraining trade, and acting with intent to willfully and illegally allow a single local towing company to monopolize the tow calls generated by the SCV Sheriff.

It is believed that the SCV Sheriffs and Wolfs Towing have engaged in an unlawful conspiracy to eliminate competition in, and ultimately to monopolize, the tow calls of the SCV Sheriffs and prevent other potential new entrants from competing in that business.

Due to the SCV Sheriffs and Wolfs Towing anticompetitive conspiracy and conduct in furtherance of their conspiracy, others in the industry have been directly and significantly injured. The anticompetitive conspiracy and conduct in furtherance of their conspiracy have no legitimate business objective and constitute a per se violation of Section 1 of the Sherman Act, 15 U.S.C. 1.

The SCV Sherriffs and Wolfs Towing unlawful conspiracy and conduct to foreclose competition, acquire and maintain a monopoly in the tow calls generated by the SCV Sheriff, violates Section 2 of the Sherman Act, 15 U.S.C. 2.

The SCV Sheriff and Wolfs Towing unlawful conspiracy and conduct to foreclose competition and acquire and maintain a monopoly in the tow calls generated by the SCV Sheriff violates Section 16720 of the California Cartwright Act.

The SCV Sheriff and Wolfs Towing have colluded to acquire and maintain a monopoly in the tow calls generated by the SCV Sheriff, and to foreclose competition from other tow providers, and have engaged in unfair and illegal business practices in violation of Section 17200 of the California Business & Professions Code.
