TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A former owner of a towing business faces up to 90 criminal counts stemming from an almost year and a half investigation.

Tuesday morning, Terre Haute Police arrested Robert Wayne Durr. He formerly owned Durr's Towing in Terre Haute. According to court documents, the majority of the charges against Durr are perjury and forgery. He also faces charges of corrupt business practice and auto theft.

Terre Haute Police report it was a citizen complaint that began the investigation. "The complaint was alleging that Durr’s Towing had stolen the complainants’ vehicle," a press release from Terre Haute Police stated.

A search warrant was served at the home of Durr on Sept. 1. "Items of interest were seized as a result of the search warrant."

Durr turned himself in to police at Vigo Superior Court Division 3 at 10 a.m. Judge Sarah Mullican advised Durr of the charges against him, and then police escorted Durr to the Vigo County Jail. Durr was booked into jail on his charges, and released after posting $10,000 bond.

News 10 learned the investigation into Durr started in October of 2015. Durr since sold his business to AAA Towing, which is owned by Keller Logistics Inc. They released the following statement early Tuesday afternoon:

"Keller Logistics Inc. purchased the assets of Durr's Towing from the Durr family on Jan. 4, 2016. Any business conducted prior to that date was conducted solely by the previous owners."

Durr will be back in court later in September.

News 10 will update this story as more information becomes available.
