OR Towing Company Owner Convicted

PORTLAND, Ore. - The 22-year-old owner of a Gresham towing company has been
convicted of stealing a man's truck, then lying to cover up her thievery with forged paperwork.
The Oregonian newspaper reported that a Multnomah County jury rejected arguments by the defense lawyer for Anna Elizabeth Alonzo, who blamed Alonzo's former boyfriend for the crimes. The former pharmacy student started Set Towing in August 2007 with her boyfriend, Ryan Patrick Joynt. The pair made headlines in recent months as police investigated them for accusations they have been stealing cars under the guise of operating a legitimate towing and repossession business.
Dozens of drivers or business owners have contacted authorities in Multnomah, Clackamas and Washington counties to complain.Alonzo faces a sentence ranging from probation to 26 months in prison
