ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dougherty County Sheriff's Investigators warn you to only buy vehicles from reputable dealers.

Friday, they filed three more theft by deception charges against 46-year-old Jesus Arango. They say more victims come forward daily.

Investigators say Arango overcharged customers and stole money meant to pay their taxes and tag fees.

More than 30 victims have come forward.

"It's just hard. You just have to trust them. but it's like I said, these corner store car lots, it's just hard to trust them," said Lieutenant Milton Thomas.

Investigators say there are services that can help you recover a title, but it costs at least $150.

Victims are advised to file civil claims against Arango to recover their money.
