Ex-car dealer accused of identity theft

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for tips that lead to the arrest of an ex-car salesman accused of ripping off his former place of employment.

Jeremy M. Frechette, 37, was to buy a 1999 Dodge Durango from TCS Auto Wholesale, 2915 E. Sprague Ave., for $2,985, but employees say he only made two $300 payments.

Police believe Frechette, who worked as a sales manager, forged a dealership employee's signature and sold the Durango to a woman for $1,000 last March.

Prosecutors filed charges of second-degree identity theft and making false statement on certificate of ownership on Feb. 2.

A $20,000 warrant was issued for Frechette's arrest after he didn't show up for an arraignment on Feb. 16.

Frechette, 6-foot-1 and 230 pounds, last gave ha home address in the 7900 block of East Valleyway Avenue in Spokane Valley.

Anyone with information on his current location is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or submit tips online.
