Businesses Raided In Odometer Scheme


(AP) — Clayton County prosecutors say the owners of two used car dealerships who are accused of rolling back vehicle odometers have been arrested.

District Attorney Tracy Graham Lawson says father and son owners of JD’s Auto Sales, John Egbe and Sylvester Egbe were arrested Thursday. Georgia Department of Revenue agent Richard Trinkwalder says they’re both charged with false swearing and title fraud. Trinkwalder says racketeering charges could also be filed against the men, who run dealerships in Clayton and DeKalb counties.

Georgia Department of Revenue Investigator Josh Waites tells the Atlanta Journal-Constitution state officials have evidence that the men manipulated vehicle odometers by hundreds of thousands of miles.

John Egbe denied the allegations as he stood outside the dealership in handcuffs.

Lawson tells WSB-TV victims may be entitled to restitution.
