Stolen cars lead to jail for dealer

A dealer has been jailed for a year for stocking stolen cars.

Maxwell Alvey was found with five cars, worth around £40,000 in total, which had been stolen and had their registration plates changed, Derby Crown Court was told.

The Derby dealer admitted four charges of possessing criminal property but claimed he had bought the cars in good faith from a Birmingham man called Brian Allen, only to later suspect they had been stolen when no paperwork arrived.
