Three woman have accused the owner of a Coeur d’Alene consignment business of selling their possessions and pocketing the proceeds.
Owners of the goods - a pickup, motor home and antiques - estimated their combined value at more than $34,000.
All three woman told Coeur d’Alene police they signed contracts with Coyote Liquidators in August to sell the items.
Vida Everett, 57, of Post Falls, has not been paid for the 1992 Chevrolet Silverado pickup Coyote Liquidators sold at an auction on Aug. 20, according to a police report. Everett estimated the truck was worth $7,000.
Hayden resident Ada Nichols, 67, also has not received payment for a $17,000 motor home the business agreed to sell, the report said.
Ann Walsh, 50, of Coeur d’Alene, told police Coyote Liquidators agreed to sell $10,415 worth of antiques for her, but said she has not been paid, according to a police report.
