WFLA-TV investigates odometer tampering in Florida. The investigation started when the reporting team pursued a case that officials had basically ignored after the dealer agreed to repurchase the vehicle. The stories expose the fraudulent practices of a local car dealer whose scheme was to illegally rollback cars' odometers 100,000 miles and sell them to unwitting customers. "The paper trail gathered in this investigative project eventually leads to the arrest of two suspects on 13 criminal charges of odometer tampering, fraud and grand theft," reporter Mark Douglas points out.
