SAN ANTONIO -- Several people who attended the University of Texas vs. Texas State football game got quiet the surprise Saturday afternoon after learning their cars had been towed.
A brother and sister who wished not to disclose their full names told News 4 WOAI they parked their car in what appeared to be a paid lot in the 300 block of Indiana St.
"He had an orange vest on, he looked like he was an event parker, " said Chris, who parked the vehicle in the lot.
Chris said the man collected ten dollars and he and his sister walked several blocks to the Alamo Dome for the football game.
When the siblings returned to their vehicle that's when they realized it had been towed.
Lonestar Tooling Solutions owns the parking lot in question which is directly across the street from their manufacturing facility. The company said it sometimes uses the lot for additional employee parking, but not for events.
"Some was an imposter because they were charging people to park here without any permission, " said James Helm with Lonestar Tooling Solutions.
Helms went on to say the company was just as surprised by the ordeal. "I feel bad too for the victims because it's not really their fault or our fault, it's somebody taking advantage of somebody else, " added Helm.
Helm went on to say the company maintenance man was scheduled to cut the grass in the empty lot on Saturday, but it happened to be full of cars. The maintenance man were told called the towing company listed on a sign on the property. "He called who he was supposed to call, " said Helm.
Chris and his sister Lee have filled a police report. The San Antonio Police department says complaints can be made to SAPD's vehicle crimes unit at (210)207-7345.
