Shane Brewster bought a truck from Credit World Auto Sales , then three weeks later he was pulled over for it being reported stolen.
Brewster bought the truck on December 12, 2012 in Tulsa off 11th and Memorial at the dealership. It was a white, 1996 Chevrolet 1500.
The week of January 17th his fiancé had called Credit World Auto Sales to tell them they would make their late payments that week.
On Thursday, January 17th, at 8:55 p.m. the Pryor police pulled Brewster over for running a stop sign. His newly bought truck also came up as stolen, according to Pryor police.
“At first I thought, did Credit World reported it stolen because of my late payments, but that didn’t make sense because they knew we were coming by with the money that week,” said Brewster. “But after we showed the police we bought the truck on December 12th they told us the truck was reported stolen before we bought it.”
The officers drove the truck over to the impound lot and then on Friday, Brewster confronted Credit World managers. They sent him to their finance department on 11th Street, called Dealer Funding Incorporated.
Brewster said the finance company denied it was stolen and refused to give him his $500 deposit back he made on the truck.
“I did not want anything to with the truck after that,” said Brewster. “They told me I needed to wait two weeks and I could have the truck back but I signed more paperwork telling them I did not want it. Now, I am out a truck and $500.”
FOX23 News asked Credit World’s manager, Wade Sharp, if he sold stolen vehicles.
“We do not sell stolen vehicles,” said Sharp. “We sell good cars to good people and we have been doing that since 1995. Your guy (referring to Brewster) has never told us about this situation or the president of Credit World.”
FOX23 said to Sharp, “Shane Brewster did come down here on January 18th, last Friday, and you sent him to the finance department down the street.”
Sharp responded with, “I don’t know about that but he is welcome to come down here and straighten this out with us.”
