NORFOLK-The owner of a Norfolk used car dealership was arrested Tuesday in a DMV investigation into selling temporary tags.
Sunni Blevins Brown with Virginia DMV told WVEC.com, "DMV law enforcement conducted a search earlier today at Eastern Auto related to the generation of documents under false pretenses."
DIV officers got to the dealership at 3535 N. Military Highway around 10:45 a.m. and arrested Yin Xiang.
Brown said the investigation continues and wouldn't confirm how long the investigation when the investigation began, but said it was at least a few weeks.
Temporary tags accompany the purchase of a car allowing the new owner time to get their vehicle titled and registered with DMV. The temporary tags were being sold at Eastern Auto without a vehicle sale, Brown stated.
She also said a temporary tag was sold Friday without a car sale, prompting Tuesday's search.
