Used-car dealership loses business license, salesman charged with larceny

MUSKEGON, MICH. - The owner of a Muskegon County used-car dealership is blaming a former employee for record-keeping violations that cost him his business license.

The Muskegon County Prosecutor's Office says the former car salesman is now charged with larceny.

Regulators from the Michigan Secretary of State's office this week pulled the license of "Arizona Charlie's Auto and Truck Sales" in Muskegon. They received complaints from customers that the dealership had not processed their titles and registrations within the required 15 days.

When an investigator visited the dealership, the owner, Charlie Guptill, could not provide required paperwork for several cars that had been sold. A summary of suspension was given to Guptill on March 7. 

By phone, Guptill, said he "voluntarily" forfeited his license and is working with customers to remedy the situation.

Customers who have a complaint against Arizona Charlie's Auto & Truck Sales are encourage to call the Office of Investigative Services automotive complaint line at 517-335-1410.
