WILKINSBURG, Pa. (AP) - State police were continuing to search for a Pittsburgh-area used car dealer accused of scamming at least 40 customers by not forwarding tax, title and other fees to PennDOT.

Trooper Robin Mungo, a spokeswoman for the barracks in Findlay Township, says police were continuing to search for Phillip Vixman and any other customers who believe they’ve lost money at his Penn Avenue Auto Sales Inc. in Wilkinsburg.

Police say the dealership has been closed and is scheduled for a sheriff’s sale soon.

Meanwhile, police can’t find Vixman, whom they plan to charge soon with theft-related crimes.

In the meantime, police are advising affected motorists to call PennDOT for help. Some people who have bought cars from Vixman now have expired plates and can’t get their vehicles inspected as a result.
