AG: Salesman stole, re-sold trucks off W. Pa. lot

WEXFORD, Pa. (AP) — A former car salesman has been charged with stealing brand new trucks from the western Pennsylvania dealership where he worked, and then reselling them for a fraction of the price to drug dealers.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for 52-year-old Perry Brown, of Natrona Heights.

He was charged Tuesday with thefts allegedly uncovered last year, though the state attorney general’s office won’t explain the delay.

Brown was a car salesman for Shults Ford in Wexford and came under investigation after investigators determined that several drug suspects were driving vehicles from the same dealership. When authorities tried to figure out why, the trail allegedly led to Brown.

Undercover agents charged Brown after he sold one $41,000 truck for $7,500 then arranged to sell two more trucks to undercover agents last June.

Shults officials didn’t immediately comment.
