Two towing company employees were cleared of charges last week in a case involving several undercover police officers, including one from the Keizer Police Department.

Timothy Hall and Bradley Kelley, employees with Bales and Brady West Towing, were arrested in January 2012 for towing vehicles parked illegally at an apartment complex on Hayesville Drive NE in Salem while undercover officers were serving a search warrant.

Officers demanded the immediate return of their vehicles, but couldn’t produce proof of ownership due to fake registration information.
