BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say the general manager of a Birmingham car dealership has been indicted on a conspiracy charge.

Authorities said in a statement Friday that 45-year-old Serra Nissan manager Randy Visser is accused of submitting false sales reports to Nissan North America to try getting incentive payments the dealership didn’t earn. Prosecutors say Visser, of Vestavia Hills, acknowledges the conspiracy charge and intents to plead guilty.

In May, the dealership’s controller was indicted on accusations that she told Nissan North America officials that certain cars were sold at Serra Nissan that were actually sold at another dealership.

In December, former Serra Nissan sales manager Gerald Shepard pleaded guilty to conspiring with salesmen and managers to sell more cars by falsifying loan documents to defraud customers and financial institutions.
