This is INCORRECT vin.

CORRECTION # is 1G2ZH57N694108468

That should be right now,I checked the rear tag as the one on the front was a mess to translate.
Guess they were in a hurry when they did it.
By the way,the car was leased or sold by
Berglund Auto.
I checked on the web,and the one in Salem/Roanoke said it was not purchased there.
Maybe we should swarm the switchboards of the one in Raleigh,NC.
How's about it ACE.
Think they would like to know the TRUE you?

Just found out that ACE tossed another one a few minutes ago.
A Hispanic man,his wife and two small children were cussed out,and physically removed from the building by his stupid hencemen and woman,who pose as security.
ACE has kept all of the items in thier booth.
Too bad I wasn't there you jerk,the police would have been called for sure.
You only pick on thoses who are too afraid or timid to stand up to you don't you.
Guess that is why the COWARD has still not answered my challenge.
I still DARE you big boy.
Lets go on the news together and see what kind of MAN you think you are.

An update on the vendor who was thrown out.

I spoke to the man on the phone,and he said this is actually the second time that ACE has done this to him.
Vendor "M" was at the mkt before it opened,he was in around the same time Dave and I were,he came to unload his building material,and while his arms were full of wood,ACE began screaming at him that he had to move his truck and use the rear entrance.
"M" tried politely,to explain to ACE that he would move his truck as soon as he put what he already had in his arms inside the building,and ACE began yelling obscenities at him and threw him out of the mkt that instant with no refund.
"M" went home dumbfounded at what had just happened to him,and tried to figure out what he would do.
The next day,he got a call from SONDRA and she told him that ACE was sorry he spoke to him the way he had,and was allowed to return to the mkt.
Todays incident was much more disturbing,as ACE did not yell at the man "M" but at his poor wife "C " and thier two small children,and had them terrified by the time "M" was able to reach her.
Turns out,that "C" had tried to pay ACE with a check,and this enraged him so much,that he threatened the poor lady,to the point she was shaking and in teras.

WHEN is someone going to stop this guy from what he is doing to ppl?
WHAT will it take for somebody to do something?
WILL he have to friggin kill someone?
Is that enough to get someones attention?
ISN'T it enough that he has stolen money and property and intimdated half of the Southside of Richmond?
WHAT more do we have to give for someone to help?

I understand the police have to do things a certain way.
I understand that the wheels of justice are slow.
I understand that there are laws.
WHEN WILL SOMEONE DO SOMETHING TO GET US THE HELP WE ALL NEED?
Stop letting him get away with all of this.
Richmond authorities,we are begging you.
All of Richmond,I ask you to call whoever you have to,to help us.
We need all of you.
We are asking for your help and support.

This was just e-mailed to me.
Why won't the police do something now?????

One day I heard on the radio about a new flea market at Jefferson Davis, so I decided to call them to find out about a space there. They told me that there were a few spaces left and I thought it would be a good opportunity to have a store there because they told me it was going to be more than a flea market and it would be open 5 days a week. So I closed my store and started to buy materials to frame my booth at the flea market. I paid them the amount of $1,100 for rent.
Two days later I put all the materials in my truck; metal studs, drywall, plywood, and doors. The lady gave me 10 minutes to unload my staff. I park at the front of the building just once. When Ace saw my truck, he started swearing at me "move your f..... truck out of my property..." and I told him that I was a new customer trying to unload my materials. He responded me very mad and said:"get out of my property, you are not going to tell me what you are going to do in my place" and he pushed me in front of everybody. Mr. Mike saw everything. A few days later Sandra, the manager, called me and asked me to come back because she found out it was not good. So I came back with all our merchandise.

Once we started to run the small business we saw (witnessed) similar problems with other people. Two weeks later when Ace knew I was a contractor, he called me to offer me a restaurant for $10,000 cash. And I said yes. We prepared a contract and went to the bank to get the cashiers check. When Ace saw the contract he got very upset and mad, saying he do not sign any contract and does not accept checks. So we couldn't get the restaurant. After this happened, my bookeeper commented to me that she felt something was wrong and suggested that the next time we pay rent to pay by check because she didn't want me to get involved with "laundry money". Also because he was driving a truck from another state and people were saying that he was going to get the money of the month and run away. Therefore we decided to pay after the fifth of August. My wife Carmen came to pay with the check and Ace got very upset and started swearing at my wife, so she went to her booth, and Ace came like 8 times to the booth trying to get the cash, everytime he was screaming, and swearing so my wife that doesn't understand much English, felt very bad because of the way ace was treating her, his gestures, and his voice. Finally he locked the booth an throw my wife with my 2 children out. When I came to pick her up, Ace saw me and told me that if I do not pay right away y have to "f...out of here". and had a secury officer scort me out. I had to leave to put my 2 babies in safety.

The next day I called the police to place a report. Sgte Godwin told me that Ace is the owner and he got the right to treat people the way he wants because is his business and that I couln't even fill up a police report because he was not an investigator.

Welcome Jeremy and thanx for the input.
The Chesterfield County Police Department is doing nothing to help any of us at this time.
First they say,"call us with your complaints and we will take action".
Many have tried,and been turned away at the door with the same excuse,it is a civil matter you have to press charges.
I am guessing this is why ACEHOLE gets away with so much,because it seems that this is the same story where ever he goes.
He does make mistakes though,and we have come across a new one that may trip him up quite nicely.
Thanks to a vendor making a huge mistake he may be about to come to his demise.
I do love a good drama.
By the way ACEHOLE,I am still waiting to get a response from your little chickies,or have you got them all tied up in the basement again?
WOW

You know Kiwi Gal....I think you are a little obsessed with this whole situation. At first, I was in there with you...but to go to the extreme of writting down tags...hanging out at his place of business....I think you are WACKO. Get a life...find something else or someone elses business to get into. You are CRAZY....seek help. Seems you are in this by yourself...no one else is helping you in law enforcement...let it go.

I am so tired of reporting things to the police,and nothing gets done.
I helped another vendor today,only to be told once again,it is civil,go file a warrant in debt.
What's the point in all this?
Who's gonna help these ppl?
Who is going to listen?
I'm sick of it all.

And by the way "WOW",at least I am trying to do something,so SIT ON IT.
I don't have to explain JACK to you.

I hate to say this, but Ace and Myrna will eventually end up leaving there. They are professionals and have pulled this in

Fl, GA, TN, an attempt in MS, and a host of other places. If you really want to get rid of him, have the police to check with MS police because I was told that he has a warrant out for his arrest for assault on one of his contractors. If true, maybe the police can hold him for the state of MS, which will give you all time to get your civil claims in order. Good luck!!

You should contact the Jackson, MS Police Dept. I want to say keep doing what you are doing because it will pay off. Another young lady in GA did not want to see her home state of MS get taken so she contacted the News Media, the Business License division and anyone else that would listen and Ace was not able to rip them off. The police and the news crew showed up and he disappeared after this supposed assault and went to TN. Good Luck.

Thanx,but have spoken to a guy there,and he said there were no cases at all there,which is discouraging.
I did call the Memphis PD and they would not help,so am leaving it up to the powers that be here,if they get on it that is.

Flea market owner charged with assault
Chesterfield vendors say they faced threats and were mistreated

Friday, Aug 22, 2008 - 12:08 AM

By WESLEY P. HESTER
TIMES-DISPATCH STAFF WRITER
A Chesterfield County flea market owner was charged yesterday with assaulting vendors and threatening one of them by phone.

Ace Pollard was taken away in handcuffs from the market he opened in June at a former Kmart store on Jefferson Davis Highway near Chippenham Parkway.

Chesterfield police confirmed that four misdemeanor warrants were executed -- three for assault and battery and one for phone threats.

Pollard was released shortly after he was taken into custody.

Miguel Gonzalez, a former vendor who pressed charges, says he was pushed by Pollard and kicked out of the market after he refused to pay a year's worth of rent,$10,000, in cash.

"He insulted me, threatened me and pushed me against my truck. I'm just trying to defend myself," Gonzalez said.

The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce held a meeting last month for vendors to tell their stories to police. About 50 people showed up, expressing frustration and looking for legal assistance. Many said they were being intimidated and were forced to pay more than they could afford.

"We heard some very compelling stories from people who have lost their life savings; from people who have lost their hopes of the American dream," said chamber president Michel Zajur.

Four people have filed warrants in debt against Pollard in Chesterfield Civil Court to recoup debts they claim to have sustained as vendors. None of the cases has been decided yet.

A small group of vendors celebrated outside of the market after Pollard was taken away by police.

"This has been a long time coming," said Toni Hunton-Shytle, a former vendor who said Pollard has faced similar claims in other states. "I just hope that more people can come forward now and not be scared."

Patrick Merritt, who runs the Uptown Fashion booth in the market, said he has never had a problem with Pollard.

"He's been a good friend to my family," he said. "He just talks loud and that intimidates a lot of people. But this is about money, and everybody is making money."

Approached last week at the market for comment on allegations from vendors, Pollard said he had none.

Attempts to reach Pollard's attorney yesterday were unsuccessful.

This message is for all vendors at the JEFFERSON DAVIS FLEA MARKET:
LET'S KEEP OUR EYES AND EARS OPEN PEOPLE.
ACE Might run like a coward this month and WHY??? I ASK WHY IS IT THAT THE AUTHORITIES ARE NOT DOING NOTHING ABOUT THIS GARBAGE TO SOCIETY.

WHY IS IT that ACE POLLARD continues to run the FLEA MARKET AND THE BUSINESS LICENSE BUREAU continues to renew this man's business license EVEN THOUGHT THEY ARE WELL AWARE OF THE CIVIL SUITS AND ALL THE BAD PUBLICITY THAT HAS BEEN IN THE MEDIA????
I ASK WHY?
THE COUNTY OF CHESTERFIELD is simply handling this as a civil matter?
I ASK WHY?
if the authorities are covering their ears and keep letting this man get away with all the
CON-ARTIST activities ALL OVER THE EAST COAST?
I ASK WHY?
WHAT IS NEXT? for this man to commit a FELONY in their eyes? IT MIGHT HAPPEN? as he has already proven to treath a man's life and push people around?
I ASK WHY?
IS IT OKAY for the so called Security personnel ACE has working at the flea market and be permitted to waalk around with a Badge AND A gun??? AND YET THEY WALK AROUND THE FLEA LOOKING HIGH OR ON DRUGS, are the authorities even aware of this?
WHAT IS NEXT?
PEACE YA'LL
