ADOT: Dealership Employee Used Stolen ID to Buy a Sports Car

Aug 6, 2019

A Winslow car dealership employee who allegedly used a stolen identity to buy a sports car and stick the victim with the bill has been arrested in New Mexico.

Arizona Department of Transportation officials say 31-year-old Randall Cepi is accused of using the personal information of a customer to purchase a sports car from a Flagstaff dealership in March 2018.

Weeks later, the victim received insurance and loan information for a vehicle she didn't buy.

ADOT detectives brought the case before a state grand jury and a felony arrest warrant was issued.

Cepi was found working at a dealership in Gallup and was arrested July 29.

He's being extradited to Arizona to face charges of fraud schemes and forgery, theft of means of transportation and taking the identity of another.
