CUMMING, Ga. — A couple went to a dealership and bought two cars with a check that never cleared, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff's incident report.
The management at Billy Howell Ford, 1805 Atlanta Highway, told deputies two cars were stolen through customer fraud.
Management said a woman and her husband came into the dealership Oct. 3 to purchase a new F-150 and a used Hummer.
After management discussed a price, the couple gave them a check for about $89,000.
The couple was issued temporary tags and drove the cars off the lot that day.
Management said the check was returned to the dealership by the bank for insufficient funds Oct. 24.
Management called the couple countless times, but they did not return the cars or pay for them.
Deputies contacted the couple and told them to either return the cars that night or pay for them in full.
The next morning, the dealership told deputies they recovered the cars, but the F-150 had been extensively damaged in an accident.
