Around 9:30am, the Lubbock Sheriff's Department acted on a court order to repossess all 25 cars on the Texas Motors car lot on 19th St. and Ave. Q. The sheriff's office says financial trouble between the dealership and its bank, State National Bank, is the reason for the repossession. Chief Deputy Paul Scarborough says the court will decide what happens to the vehicles.
"We'll probably either sell those vehicles or return those vehicles back to the dealership depending on what the court situation is," said Scarborough. Scarborough says the department had been working for several days on the case before Thursday's repossession.
