METHUEN, MA – It’s always something with Valley Towing in Methuen. After being caught up in an insurance fraud and auto theft scheme in the 80’s, Methuen Licensing Board Chairman Ronald Parrino’s towing company went out of business.
It was reopened at the same location with a new name Valley Towing Inc., by Mass State Trooper Ronald Bellanti. He has since passed away, and Ron Parrino is the current owner.
