MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) — A former Mason City car salesman has been ordered to pay more than $92,000 restitution in a theft case.
The Mason City Globe Gazette reported Thursday that 54-year-old Timothy Behm said he plans to appeal the order issued by Judge Rustin Davenport. Behm was convicted of seven counts of theft.
In a damages statement, Assistant Iowa Attorney General Robert Sand asked the court to order that restitution be paid to Mason City Ford. Court documents say Behm bought vehicles from the dealership and then later sold or traded the same vehicles back to the dealer for higher prices.
