An Enterprise used car dealer has been indicted by a Geneva County grand jury on a theft by deception charge.
Robert Parker allegedly sold a BMW in Atlanta without legally having the title.
Geneva County Sheriff Greg Ward says the title belongs to a Geneva County business which helped Parker finance the purchase of the BMW from a car auction.
Sheriff Ward says Parker sold the car but never notified the victim about the transaction.
The victim is out of more than $22,000.
“There's at least one victim, that person in Atlanta, Georgia who bought this vehicle does not have the title to it, that's because the vehicle is owned by the victim in Geneva who has the sole title to this vehicle," said Sheriff Ward.
Parker has been released from the Geneva County Jail on a 20,000 bond.
Authorities are looking to talk to other possible victims in the reported scheme.
