Customers of Aurora auto body shop say their cars were gone and parts were missing

AURORA, Colo. -- Clinton Isaac was hoping to get his bumper fixed when he brought it to Montview Auto Body in Aurora, but instead, he says the TV screen inside his car was stolen.

When Isaac asked the owner what happened, the owner didn't have much to say.

“Every time I talked to him on the phone I got the run-around,” said Clinton Isaac.  

Clinton decided to take legal action against the owner.

“I went to court on two occasions, and both of those occasions, he never showed up to court,” said Isaac.

The judge then awarded Clinton over $4,000, but the owner has yet to pay him back.

The Better Business Bureau has given the business an F. Denver7 found it out at least eight people have taken the owner to court and some have yet to be paid. Aurora police say people have complained to them about their cars disappearing once they've been dropped off.

“We’ve assisted a lot of people in getting their cars back,” said Aurora officer Bill Hummel.

Police assisted in finding some of the cars by driving around the area where the shop is at.

“In some incidents, we've driven around and found them parked on public roadways,” said Hummel. Aurora police say customers can’t file a criminal complaint because it’s not a criminal offense.

“When you pay somebody to complete a service to do body work, to do car work, you are sort of entering in a civil contract with them,” said Hummel.

The shop is now seized by the city of Aurora, and records show the owners is a man by the name of Dwyane Blaylock.

Denver 7 has tried to reach Blaylock twice via phone with no luck.

Police are asking anyone who is still looking for the car to contact the city's tax and licensing division.
