Man buys used car, discovers it was stolen



ROSWELL, Ga. — Roswell police along with a special agent from the Georgia Department of Revenue helped recover a stolen black Ford F150 recently.

Police met with the special agent to verify the VIN number of the Ford he was investigating. The new owner of the vehicle had called in the special agent after he purchased the vehicle and ran into trouble while trying to register it.

Police determined that the VIN displayed had been altered and was not the original sticker. They found the actual VIN number bylooking under the hood.

After running the correct VIN number, police were alerted that the Ford had been listed as stolen by DeKalb County Police in June 2007
