Escondido police said on Tuesday that a vehicle repair firm that filed for bankruptcy had not complied with a court order requiring it to register as a car maintenance company and submit receipts for repairs.
Escondido Police Department said the company filed for Chapter 11 protection in January and that it had not filed any bills in court.
The company’s attorneys filed a request for the court to intervene on May 19, and Escondida Superior Court Judge Timothy P. McAllister granted the request.
A vehicle inspection firm, M.A.G.S. Auto & Auto Repair, filed for protection on June 7, according to the court records.
In response to the filing, the company said that it has not filed a bill for repairs, but had submitted receipts to the state to file a bill.
The state Department of Licensing and Regulation on June 6 sent Escondidad Police a letter stating that it was “aware of and is reviewing the matter,” according to a release.
The department said it would be filing a complaint against the company.
The dealership said in a statement that the company was “not responsible for any repairs that may have been made.”
Escondidad police said the dealership had no other information on the filing.
