NJ dealer charged with selling Sandy damaged cars
TRENTON, N.J. - December 20, 2013 (WPVI) -- The operator of a used car dealership in Middlesex County has been charged with others in an alleged scheme to sell vehicles that were damaged in Superstorm Sandy.
The attorney general's office said Friday that the operator of D&D dealership in Old Bridge allegedly conspired with others to create fraudulent titles for storm-damaged vehicles.
A State Motor Vehicle Commission technician and two employees of the dealership were previously charged in the alleged criminal scheme.
A woman who answered the phone at the dealership said they had no comment.
Prosecutors say from February through July, the defendants allegedly acquired eight storm-damaged vehicles that were auctioned by an insurance company for parts only.
Hoffman says the defendants allegedly had fake titles issued for the vehicles, and sold them to unsuspecting customers.
