Man Accused Of Stealing Vehicles From Used Car Dealerships In Springfield

Two brothers who operate a Federal Heights used-car dealership have been charged with fraud and theft after they allegedly rolled back 2,683,751 miles on the odometers of 29 vehicles, authorities say.

Sedeq Kargar, 47, and Naim Kargar, 54, owners of AFG Auto Sales at 9270 Federal Blvd., were charged Tuesday by Adams County District Attorney Dave Young’s office.

The Kargar brothers sold cars with tampered odometers to customers between April 2015 and August 2018, according to a news release by Young’s spokeswoman Sue Lindsay.

The brothers are charged with one count each of theft of up to $100,000 and six counts of forgery, the news release says. They allegedly defrauded 34 people, it says.

The Kargar brothers are scheduled to appear Feb. 26 in Adams County Court for advisement of the charges against them.

Agents from the Colorado Department of Revenue’s Auto Industry Division and Young’s economic crime unit conducted the investigation leading to the charges.

Investigators examined hundreds of individual car sales records before executing a search warrant on the business in August.
