(Doy-sha) Deutsche Financial Services says repossessing a big chunk of the inventory there will help repay a small portion of a long overdue loan...court records indicate Crenshaw owes Deutsche more than 300- thousand- dollars.
This was NOT an easy seizure.
A Roanoke Sheriff's deputy eventually had to call in a locksmith to get in the store.
It was closed for "inventory".
A Crenshaw attorney said this surprised the company because "Crenshaw has been in discussions with (Doy-sha) Deutsche and was trying to work things out.
And then, all of the sudden, this ensued."

Karl Roush (ROWSH) was accused of kidnapping 16- year- old Sofia Silva, who was later found murdered.
The charges were based on fiber evidence from the Virginia state crime lab.
Last week, authorities learned the lab made a mistake analyzing the fibers.
The move re-opens the possibility that Silva's murder is linked to the killings of Kristin and Kati Lisk.
Autopsy reports show similarities in the crimes.
