A 24-year-old Harrisburg man posing as a car dealer stole nearly $4,000 from a victim, Upper Allen Township police said Thursday.
Detective Sergeant Thomas Kauffman said Perry Jerome Solomon, posing as a car dealer, took the victim to a car auction on November 1 and told him he found a car him to buy. When the victim gave Solomon $3950, Kauffman said Solomon took off with the money and did not buy the car.
Solomon turned himself in on February 26, 2013. His preliminary hearing was held on April 1. He is charged with theft by deception.
