Sangamon Deputies Evict Gold Buying Company


SPRINGFIELD- THR and Associates, also known as the Treasure Hunters Roadshow would buy your scrap gold, promising you top dollar. But now they don't have enough cash of their own to pay rent.

Wednesday afternoon, Sangamon County deputies posted an eviction notice on a 20 thousand square foot warehouse in Springfield. The deputies changed the locks so THR can't get in. It's the second eviction notice they've given a THR facility this month.

The company has been in trouble for bouncing checks all over the country.

Back in October, a WAND Investigation showed using a hidden camera how THR buyers were undervaluing gold and silver.

A spokesperson from the company released this statement: "THR and Associates will be choosing an auction company to liquidate all remaining assets."

But this isn't the final eviction notice they're getting.  The Deputy Chief says there will be another eviction of a warehouse Friday.
