UTV dealer charged with keeping payments

KINGSPORT, Tenn. (AP) -- The owner of a Kingsport equipment business has been charged with felony theft after buyers of utility vehicles had them repossessed.

The Kingsport Times-News reported 34-year-old Glen Allen Courtney Jr. was charged Tuesday with theft over $10,000.

The investigation began after a woman paid $11,000 for a utility terrain vehicle from Courtney's business, Extreme Power Sports, in March. The buyer told police a repossession company confiscated it when she took it back for a repair. The telephone rang busy at the listed number on Thursday.

Police said a second customer's UTV was repossessed, along with all of Courtney's stock of vehicles. Further investigation revealed Courtney did not send the manufacturer money about 10 customers had paid for the vehicles. Courtney is free on bond.
