24 Hour Auto and Towing Joe Van Thief Minneapolis, Minnesota!!. I hired Joe Van who owns 24 hour Auto and Towing to come to my house and work on my car. He started the work and then came and told me he needed to order more parts. He wanted the money for the parts and he asked if I would pay him for the labor. I agreed to pay him and wrote him a check. He then refused to come back and finish the work. This guy is a thief and a no good con man. DO NOT do business with him he will rip you off.
