HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A man wanted on false pretense charges in connection to a report filed by a Hub City car dealership has been arrested. 

Todd Perry was arrested and charged by the Hattiesburg Police Department on Tuesday, according to Hattiesburg Police Department Public Information Officer Latosha Myers-Mitchell. 

According to a press release from the Hattiesburg Police Department, personnel at Vardaman Buick Honda filed a report of false pretense, on Sept. 19th, that $238,000 was taken.

Myers Mitchell said that Perry is not an employee at the dealership.

According to Mississippi Code Title 97; 97-19-39, false pretense is described as the following:

"Every person, who with intent to cheat or defraud another, shall designedly, by color of any false token or writing, or by another false pretense, obtain the signature of any person to any written instrument, or obtain from any person any money, personal property, or valuable thing, with a value of Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00) or more, upon conviction thereof shall be guilty of a felony and punished by imprisonment in the State Penitentiary not exceeding ten (10) years, and by a fine not exceeding Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000.00)"

HPD said the investigation is ongoing, and anyone with additional information on this, or any case can contact Metro CrimeStoppers.
