A Beaumont company and its owner are accused of breach of contract for allegedly defaulting on a loan.

RREF CB SBL-TX filed a lawsuit against Kirbow Transportation Enterprises and Joseph Bryan Kirbow on Aug. 21 in Jefferson County District Court. 

According to the complaint, Kirbow Transportation Enterprises executed a promissory note Dec. 29, 2004, payable to the order of Texas State Bank in the amount of $221,000.

The note was renewed in the amount of $199,212 in May 2008. RREF CB SBL-TX says it acquired the note and currently owns the account.

RREF CB SBL-TX contends Kirkbow Transportation and its owner, Joseph Bryan Kirbow, stopped making payments and defaulted on the loan in April 2012. The company says the defendants owe $64,281 plus interest and late charges.

RREF CB SBL-TX LLC seeks full past-due amount along with interest, late fees, cost of collection and attorney fees.

Attorneys Ben H. Harris III, of Miami, Fla., and Lara D. Pringle, of Houston, represent the company.
