Folks, we previously reported Ziaja's involvement in the Title Marts. A lot of things have changed since way back then. We understand that Ziaja is going to work for the Tennessee Law Enforcement Agency. Ziaja set out to make a name for himself in Morgan County, Alabama. We believe he accomplished that mission.
Steven Ziaja was recently spotted at the Decatur Title Mart hard at
work. Ziaja is a silent partner with the Title Marts in Decatur,
Trinity, Hartselle, and Hoover. We wonder if the Alabama Law Enforcement
Agency is aware of his side job? For you folks who do not know who
Steven Ziaja is, he is/was Sheriff Franklin's boy friend. Ziaja is an agent
with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency.
I can't help

Greg Steenson, one of the members of Priceville Partners, LLC. We
believe that Mr. Steenson was found guilty of being involved in a Kite

went to prison. To verify this information do a Google business entity

you will see see Mr. Steenson's name as one of the managers and
There have been several complaints made
against Ziaja during his time as an ABC agent. To date no known
disciplinary actions have been taken against Ziaja. A resident of
Decatur said he stalked her in a grocery store. Another lady told of an
incident where Ziaja showed up at their home flashing his badge and
trying to search their home without a warrant bragging about being the
sheriff's boy friend. In another incident Ziaja is said to have thrown a
store owners records and files on the floor of his store in an outrage.
Two alleged agents went to the office of one of the women who complained
about Ziaja. There are more stories but you get the picture.
at the Sheriff's house?
The below listed pictures were taken today. The camera date is
wrong. We do not believe in cropping. Less than two months ago the
Hartselle Title Mart was filled to the brim with cars. Today it appears
that Title Mart has cut back on their inventory.
