Peoria auto dealer indicted for possessing stolen cars

Posted: Updated:
PEORIA, Ill. (WEEK) -- -

The president of a local car dealership was indicted Tuesday for possessing stolen cars.

Court records show Pioneer Auto Sales president Marty Goldstein faces nine counts of unlawful possession of a stolen vehicle. 

The Journal Star reports that the charges stem from a search warrant filed last month, in which the Peoria County Sheriff's Office started to investigate Goldstein following a late April accident in Chillicothe.

That investigation then led investigators to find another vehicle with a VIN number, matching another vehicle in Minnesota.

If convicted on all charges, Goldstein could face up to 15 years in prison.
