An Illinois man is suing a leaser, alleging lack of payment for a truck that has been leased to the defendant and hasn't been returned.
Charles W. Pence filed the lawsuit on Nov. 9 in Madison County Circuit Court against Brennan D. Weber.
According to the complaint, Pence owns a Peterbilt truck that he leased to Weber per a lease purchase agreement dated May 31. The suit alleges the defendant has failed to comply with the terms of the agreement, still possesses the vehicle and is in default.
Pence wants the truck returned as well as the $52,000 value of the truck, damages for detention, reasonable attorney fees and court costs. He is represented by attorney Janel Freeman of East Alton.
Madison County Circuit Court case number 15-L-1444.
