A bankruptcy trustee says former auto dealer Denny Hecker has failed to turn over some assets, including jewelry valued at $260,000.
The court-appointed trustee filed a complaint against Hecker Monday. The trustee also filed a notice saying he can't afford to file the lawsuit because there are insufficient funds in the account of Hecker's seized items.
Last week, Chrysler Financial Services sued Hecker, accusing him of obtaining $83 million through fraud and embezzlement. It argues a bankruptcy court should not discharge the debt.
A court ruled in an earlier lawsuit that Hecker owed Chrysler Financial $477 million, but Hecker then filed for personal bankruptcy in June. That filing makes it likely much of the $364 million still owed could be forgiven. But Chrysler Financial claims $83 million should not be discharged because of the alleged illegal acts.
