Holy Crap! Bankruptcy, Scam etc

More allegations in Priceville Partners bankruptcy

By Eric Fleischauer Metro Editor


Blogger Comments:  


A scam, embezzlement, houses, cash, vehicles, boats, and mismanagement among some of the claims that have been identified in a filing by the Trustee of the Chapter 11 Bankruptcy of the Performance Auto Sales.  


If you are not a reader of the Decatur Daily you need to pick up a paper this morning.  We have been reporting issues involving Sheriff Ana Franklin, Steven Ziaja, Greg Steenson and others for over two years regarding Performance Auto Sales.  We did not report on Harold Jeffreys even though a source who calls himself "treetrimmer" has taunted us for a couple of years that we should be looking at Mr. Jeffreys.  Treetrimmer promised to send his "proof".  The proof never came until approximately two weeks ago when treetrimmer started sending us parts of a far bigger problem.  The only problem is he only sent us the information pertaining to the Jeffreys.  We waited for the rest of the story.  When the whistleblower began exposing corruption within the sheriff's office, the Performance Auto Sales popped up early on in the blog.  Unfortunately, this story has many tentacles as an octopus and it just keeps growing.  


We have been dogged on the blog for the last couple of week and sent private emails from someone who calls himself treetrimmer.  I have personally been accused of vulgar acts with one of the owners, Mr. Jeffreys.  I have been accused of being paid off by one of the owners, Mr. Jeffreys.  It is easy to tell what triggers the treetrimmer conduct.  All we dare do is mention Performance Auto Sales and a few choice names.  Treetrimmer never stops because he does not want us to tell the truth.  Treetrimmer doesn't want the people to know the entire story of the worthless people he has surrounded himself with.  Treetrimmer has told on himself.   


We revealed that Sheriff Franklin, Alyssa Franklin, Steven Ziaja, Greg Steenson, and members of the MCSO such as Bones Wilson and Blake Robinson were involved with the Performance Auto Sales dealership and had invested in the dealership.  We know this because we have some of the records. 


They involved themselves in a scam, a scam that cheated a lot of good people out of their hard-earned money.   They were a part of the scam.  Greg Steenson along with Steven Ziaja and Ana Franklin and their friends and family hopped on the bandwagon to get their fair share.   


Treetrimminer has fed us information over the last couple of weeks hoping we would post information so that it would take the heat off of some of the sorry scoundrels we talk about on the blog.  He wanted us to report prematurely about the allegations surrounding Mr. Jeffreys and his family.   If all of the attention is placed on Jeffreys maybe people will not notice Sheriff Franklin and others are also mentioned in the story.   We refused to tell the story that treetrimmer wanted out on Mr. Jeffreys until the entire story was officially posted on Pacer.

 I believe the Decatur Daily laid the story out very well.  Our readers deserve the entire story so check out the daily.


We are glad we waited for the rest of the story. 


The Decatur Daily lays it all out.  It leaves no stone unturned.  A lot of people profited.  I am disappointed in the allegations some are facing but not surprised in others, It appears that in the case of Performance Auto Sales nobody wins.   There is a lot of money that must be paid back to those who invested in a company that they believed in.  We hope everyone involved does the right thing.  


It looks as if the saga of the Performance Auto Sales will continue on for several more months.  Most likely about the same amount of time the issues with the MCSO saga plays out.  


Treetrimmer is a sly ole dog who tried very hard to taunt the whistleblowers into letting the cat out of the bag before it's time.  Treetrimmer wants the public to believe that the whistleblowers are in cahoots with this mess and that we protected Mr. Jeffreys.  We didn't and we are not in cahoots with anybody.  Treetrimmer refused to provide us with honest and truthful information that didn't pertain to all of the players.  He only wanted Mr,. Jeffrey to be hammered.  Well, Mr. Jeffreys is being hammered and so is a bunch of others.


The bottom line is that Mr. Jeffreys is alleged to have removed almost 1M dollars from the dealership.  His son, son-in-law, and daughter are also caught up in the complaint.  If Mr. Jeffreys took the money he should pay it back.  Ana did.  A lot of hard-working men and women lost their vehicles and their money at the dealership.  Some of those people were the poorest of the poorest who paid their hard earned money for those vehicles.


Parts of the Trustee's complaint alleges that Alyssa Franklin the daughter of Sheriff Ana Franklin forgave a debt for a vehicle her boyfriend purchased at Priceville Partners.  A forgiveness she did not have the authority to give.  The vehicle was said to be purchased below cost and financed below-market interest rate.  You may remember that we blogged about Jonathan Stebbins early on in the blog.  Sheriff Ana Franklin hired Jonathan Stebbins to work as a corrections officer in the Morgan County Jail while he was spending his weekends in jail in Limestone County.  During Stebbins six weeks of employment, he was arrested two or three more times before being allowed to resign without proper notice from the sheriff's office.  Corrections Officer Hayes was forced out of the MCSO because Sheriff Ana Franklin believed that Hayes was feeding the whistleblower information.  Corrections Officer Hayes never provided the whistleblowers' information.  


Remember Risky Business?  The boat or Sports Yacht we blogged about over a year ago.  The boat was purchased by Roger Renfroe from Greg Steenson.  Greg Steenson, Steven Ziaja, and Sheriff Ana Franklin boated together in happier days.  We found out that Greg Steenson and Steven Ziaja cleaned the boat out while it was stored at a Decatur marina and moved it to a marina in Florence.


Greg Steenson signed documents in Federal Court agreeing that he owed the business approximately 3M dollars.  Folks, this is money that most of us can't even imagine.  How and why did sheriff Ana Franklin, Steven Ziaja, Bones Wilson,  Blake Robinson, Alyssa Franklin, Jonathan Stebbins, John Vinegoni, and many other of Sheriff Franklin's family and friends get caught up in the Performance Auto Sales mess?  Greed.


Both Greg Steenson and Steven Ziaja have been arrested and are facing charges for actions taken in the Performance Auto Sales debacle.  The question is who is next?


One thing is for sure this mess isn't over.

  1. Everyone gets Ana and the car lot was dirty. Same ol stories, with the same information. Ana is not running for re election, so why the continued focus. The page says Morgan County Whistle Blowers. Why is the page now not looking into Ray Long and all his mis information, the County loosing 1Million in Remington that's now filling bankruptcy? Why is this page not looking into Ray meddling into everyones buisness and the Sheriffs race? Ana is over, whatever happens in the courts happens with her. We need to continue now with other Major issues, such as Ray.

  2. There you go again. If you want to talk about Ray Long start a blog and post your proof of corruption. Apparently you are to damn lazy to do anything your self.

    1. Last I checked this was Morgan Co. Whistle Blowers! No where does it mention just Morgan Co. Sheriff's Office jackass. Are you afraid to speak of all the favortism with our Chairman. Did someone hit a nerve. You seem offended, you trying to protect the almighty?

  3. Same ole information on Steenson, but boy oh boy the comments have been accurate this week on Jeffreys. Your readers told you he was a crook. $700,000 to himself. Few hundred thousand to his son, daughter, and son in law. Who would ever miss it? Oh that’s right, the hard working men and women he begged money out of. Then Glenda has the nerve to continue to support that crook today. I no longer think you are biased Glenda, we all now know you are STUPID!!!

    1. Sometimes when your on a sinking ship you stay too long. You trust the captain, I think Glenda stayed on the Jeffreys ship to long. How does that salt water taste Glenda?

    2. Hold on now, that’s not all Glenda’s fault. Jeffreys can paint a picture no artist could draw. He will promise you things that are so appetizing you can’t dare walk away. He uses that ole country boy talk and how much money he has made to do it. Then if you don’t take the bait he will put some religion on you. He’s good, real good. It takes a long time to figure him out. Don’t blame Glenda. For an ole bankrupt Sheetrock hanger, I am sure he convinced her he was smartest, most honest man alive. Probably going to make her “Morgan county’s next millionaire”, that’s on of his favorite lines.

  4. Spot on, it’s easy too see that the whole bunch at Performance Auto Sales did exactly what they wanted to, when they wanted too. Now innocent people are hurting. The sad part is that while hard working people are suffering the only statement the ever so arrogant Harold Jeffreys can say is “ I think we’ll try it in court, I’ve got a pretty good lawyer”. Really Jeffreys, that’s the only answer you can come up with for the hard working people you stole money from. Absolutely no acceptance of responsibility, no remorse and no regret for any of his actions. What a piece of dog poop! When he gets to HELL I bet there will be an especially hot place for him.

  5. Whose next on the arrest front? I would say Harold Jeffreys, Ben Jeffreys, and John Klein, the question is, will Katie Klein be arrested? Harold what have you done to your family? At the very least they are all looking at bankruptcy fraud. It’s a bad day to be a Jeffreys.

  6. Here’s something for you to investigate Glenda, others are. What kind of misdeeds did Jerry Knight do for Harold Jeffreys and his so called expert accountant and Birmingham bankruptcy lawyer? Did he use his state computer at The Morgan County District Attorneys office to search for people to help Jeffreys with his repos? I think he did, kinda the same thing Ziaja got arrested for. I hear people are looking around. Check this out for us Glenda.

    1. Jerry Knight was so determined to get Steenson for Harold Jeffreys that he just went nat shit crazy. I hear that one time after a deposition at Barney Lovelace’s office Jerry Knight stayed late at the DA’s Office so he could run over to Barney’s office and meet with bankruptcy attorney Lee Benton. Jerry was so excited he stood in the street and almost got run over trying to get the poop. That my friends is some serious investigative skills. Oh wait, I thought the police were suppose to do the investigation. Hmmm, not in this case. A very zealous Knight. Too bad he got fired for his misdeeds. Good work Knight.

    2. That’s nothing, I heard he would get out at 4:30 and 5 o’clock in the morning just to ride around Steenson’s house. And then multiple times throughout the day, that boy was on his job I tell you.

    3. Who is supposed to be in charge of the DAs office?

    4. Wait, I thought Anderson and Steenson were related, plus one of the people sued in the bankruptcy action is Anderson’s uncle. Seems a little close to me. Ask Ana what happens when you mix family and politics?

  7. Why would Harold Jefferys be out borrowing money from honest hard-working people if he has the money that he portrays himself to have?

  8. He is a sorry no good thug. Now he has corrupted his family. By the way, isn’t his daughter an attorney?

    1. I guess she is the attorney he touted about to the Decatur Daily?

  9. She probably won’t be much longer, I am sure there are consequences for fraud and embezzlement. Looks like she should have given him some advice before the bankruptcy filing.

  10. Sounds like the sly ole dog “treetrimmer” has Glenda distributed, looks like now you should have listened Glenda, could have saved you some real embarrassment. The tables sure have turned these past few days.

  11. Jeffreys could have so easily avoided all of this, people would have their money and titles and Jeffreys would already have most of his money back. Instead he took the cowards way out. He listened too a rogue forensic accountant and a half ass lawyer and look what it's got him. Everybody knows you are a thief and a liar Harold Jeffreys. You have damaged innocent people and hurt their ability to make a living, you brought shame and embarrassment not only to yourself but to your entire family. The damage Harold Jeffreys has done is inexcusable, he should be forced to pay each and every investor back the money he stole from them, even if he has to sale his home to do it. His daughter will probably never be able to practice law again, and his son and son in law are in trouble, they may not realize it yet but Harold will through them under the bus in a heartbeat to save his own sorry hide. The sad part is he tried and almost succeeded in pointing his crooked fingers at everyone else, and had he not filed bankruptcy it would have worked. Luckily the bankruptcy trustee and his attorney saw through Harolds little game. I hope he reads this and seriously thinks about the hurt he has caused so many people, he should be ashamed.

  12. Glenda you dumbass, you had the same access to these lawsuits that The Decatur Daily had, you just didn't want to report it. The only reason you are reporting this today is because the daily did. Your just a Johhny come lately. You could have broke the story, but you would have had to betray Jeffreys to do it. You got bit in the ass again.

    1. Glenda didn’t take anybody down. Looks like she has been taken down, she will be lucky as a dog with three peckers if she doesn’t get rolled into the Jeffreys scam. Good luck Glenda!!! You need it.

  28. Glenda honey, the tables have turned, get it together and give it up. Your little blog has run its course, all that’s left now is further embarrassment for you and the thieves you have chosen to associate with. If I were you I would close this thing down, tuck tail and go home. There is no shame in admitting you were defeated, the shame comes in when you try to stay to long, and that’s what you have done. Admit it, the glory days are over, you had a good run and it was fun. In the end you just got embarrassed. It will be ok!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Again: Not Glenda. As a matter of fact, today is the first day I've posted after reading from the beginning. But this BS, "Admit it, the glory days are over, you had a good run and it was fun. In the end you just got embarrassed"???

    Mama is the one carrying the "embarrassment" here... and she spread it to her whole family. She was too "embarrassed" to run for office again. :)

  30. I think she has a better offer. Nice try Glenda, the deflection queen. Better call Jeffreys and Jerry Knight and get you some legal help.
