Repo man chases paycheck on beach area roads

Sep 20, 2010 12:12:00 AM - thestate.com
Chad Yerkie cruises Hemingway Street in his big, black Dodge tow truck looking for an address. As he slows down, the hydraulic tow bar stowed in the truck's bed begins to unfold into position.

He passes a house at a crawl, then speeds up again, and the tow bar returns to its cradle.

His bounty missing in action, the repo man has been foiled. For the moment.

But that doesn't bother Yerkie, who works for Myrtle Beach-based Big Dog Recovery. He's got a stack of paperwork from banks and finance companies, and he'll chase down a vehicle at someone's house, their job, a friend's house, a restaurant, church - wherever it is and whoever is driving it.

"I've worked seven days a week for a month now," Yerkie said. "There has been at least a 50 percent increase in repossessions in the past two years."
