A Jonesboro car dealership falls victim to a scammer.

According to a Jonesboro Police Department incident report, on July 14, a salesman of the Frank Fletcher Chrysler Dodge Jeep dealership told an officer they sold a 2016 Dodge Challenger on Ebay to a man over the phone.

After the paperwork was complete and proper identification was sent to the bank for Fletcher Dodge, the vehicle was shipped to Michigan.

Shortly after, it was discovered the person whose identity was used to purchase the vehicle in Michigan was stolen, according to the report.

Fletcher Dodge reported the vehicle as stolen to their insurance.

On July 14, Detroit Auto Recovery contacted JPD stating the 2016 Dodge Challenger was recovered in lieu of an arrest.
