Report 19-0036: The theft of motor vehicle was reported by a subject at Randolph Plaza. According to the victim she met a man on Facebook sometime in October who was advertising a Chevy Avalanche for sale. He identified himself as Christopher Knuckles. He stated he was trying to sell a friend’s pickup truck. She met the man at the owner’s residence, an apartment complex in Englewood. The owner was also present. She went with both men to the BMV in Randolph Plaza where she purchased a title for the vehicle. Afterward she went with both men to an auto loan store in Trotwood and obtained funds for the purchase and paid $1,500 for the truck. She then went with both men to Pacemont Avenue in Clayton to leave the truck with the resident who works on vehicles at the property. The vehicle reportedly needed some maintenance work and she agreed to leave the truck at the recommendation of Mr. Knuckles and the other male. She was told to return in three days to pick the vehicle up. When she returned the truck was not on the property. She said she spent months trying to figure out what happened to the truck. When she contacted the man who performed the work he threatened her about the situation multiple times. She said she also had a hard time trying to figure out whose police jurisdiction it was and got caught in a cycle of being referred multiple times to different police departments. Police escorted the female to the property on Pacemont Avenue. The resident there confirmed he sold the vehicle to the female but he had nothing to do it with being missing. Police checked the Law Enforcement Automated Database System and discovered that the truck had been towed by Sandy’s Towing with authorization from Dayton Police on Oct. 25, 2018. The actual registered owner was listed as someone other than the man who sold it. The female was informed that the truck had been towed and where it was being held.
