27 Investigates: Police search Bugno’s Towing

Bugno House 1

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — Police searched Bugno’s Towing and Recovery and the family’s home in Struthers on Thursday.

Youngstown police detectives and agents from the FBI and Ohio BCI took part in the searches. Our station discovered a police report from more than two weeks ago that accuses an employee of the towing company of paying a 16-year-old for oral sex.

The father of that teen had called police to file the report. The owners of Bugno’s and the employee named in the police report are denying the accusation.

Police have not arrested or charged anyone at this time.
