State Suspends Missing Dealer Featured

By Staff Writer July 08, 2019

The Michigan Department of State issued a summary suspension to a used-car dealer after inspectors went to inspect his records and found the store closed.

In February, a department agent went to Jake’s Enterprises in Dowagiac, owned by Jake Meachum, to inspect the property and business records. Although dealership hours were listed as 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, the door was locked, and no one was present.

On March 20, a preliminary conference notice was sent to Meachum by certified mail, requesting that he provide the records for inspection. The notice was returned April 25 as “unclaimed.”

The summary suspension was issued after the two attempts to obtain dealership records failed.
