Cedar Street in Mason and owned by Michael S. Fetter, primarily because they had not received titles to their vehicles in a timely manner.When secretary of state agents inspected the facility, they found a number of violations. Great Lakes Auto allegedly had continually failed to apply for title and registration in the purchaser’s name, as required by law; failed to maintain a sufficient surety bond, displayed and sold vehicles without properly assigned titles, filed title applications containing false information and submitted nine non-sufficient fund checks to the department.In the Jackson case, a secretary of state agent attempted to make an inspection at Ghuman Auto Sales, located at 816 Greenwood Avenue and owned by Salim Mohammad Chaudri. The dealership doors were locked, there were no employees present and it was not possible to inspect the facility’s records. The City of Jackson had revoked the dealer’s authority to conduct business due to multiple alleged violations of city ordinances.
