MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

State officials want the owners of a Marshall County business to pay up.

The Department of Conservation is suing them saying they owe more than $100,000 in unpaid hunting and fishing license fees.

The state is taking this to court, but attorneys for the state said the owners have not even responded to the lawsuit or come to court.

They're asking the judge to step in and rule in their favor.

State conservation attorneys said Doug and James Campbell served as agents for the state in 2010.

They sold fishing and hunting licenses at Waterfront Grocery just south of Scottsboro on Highway 79.

The men were obligated to prepare monthly statements and submit those reports and license fees on a monthly basis.

The complaint says an audit later showed they'd shorted the Department of Conservation more than $100,000.

When the Campbells were notified, the complaint said they received a check for just $4500.

Doug Campbell said they are working toward getting the money paid.

The former agents are currently not allowed to sell any more licenses.

The parties are due back in court October 24th.
