Summary An ex-felon schemed up a plan to buy wrecked rental cars, patching them up and roll back the odometers, then sell the tainted autos to a used car dealer. The dealership passed off at least 11 autos on area customers. A few customers took the dealership to court on fraud charges and won. But a few of the cars may still be on the road.
