A Florida man schemed a plan to sell a car he stole from a dealership back to the same business. It didn't go well for him.

  • He is now facing multiple charges

A man was arrested on multiple charges, including vehicle theft on Monday in Lake City, Florida after having returned to the scene of his crime.

The police department was dispatched to Lake City Chrysler Dodge Jeep after employees became suspicious of a man that came in to trade a used vehicle on a newer one.

A check of the car’s VIN proved it was the same vehicle that had been stolen from the dealership three days prior.

The man had apparently tried to make a quick buck by trading in the vehicle he had stolen days before, unfortunately he choose to do so at the same place he had committed the crime.

The make and model of said vehicle hasn’t been disclosed.

After having been confronted by the police, the man now identified as Timothy Wolfe, of Lake City confessed to the crime, which could be seen on the dealer’s video surveillance system.
