Police: Man Sold Non-Existent Car to Wappingers Business For $33K
Police say an 18 year old Manhattan man is facing felony grand larceny charge after selling an imaginary antique car to a Wappingers Falls business for $33,000. David G. Milkis allegedly sold the imaginary 1936 Packard model 1401 to the business back in October. Milkis was arrested Tuesday and is being charged with third-degree grand larceny.
Police said the victim transferred $33,000 to Milkis' bank account to purchase the antique car. Authorities said the victim was given fake documentation -- including fake names and addresses -- that led the victim to believe he or she was purchasing the car from San Antonio, Texas.
Milkis is the second person arrested in the case, as 21 year old, Spring Valley resident Melissa Fontana was arrested back on March 26th in connection to the sale.
