Francisco Guzman, who was parked just a few spots down, said he also paid the parking fee.
"There's a ticket here, and there's a couple of boots on my wheels," he said.
"We paid our $5," one angry customer told the parking lot attendant. "Where did it go?"
"There should be a camera showing that he put the money in there, because I witnessed him putting the money in there," said another irate customer. "We're not crazy. It has to be some kind of scam or something."
The drivers had to pay $100 to get the boots removed from their cars.
"This is theft, because I did pay the $5," Guzman said.
The car owners said they plan to appeal the fines they had to pay to get the boots removed from their vehicles."
