CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) – A Blair County man has been arrested for allegedly filing a false report that his 1963 Corvette was stolen at the Carlisle Car Show.
On April 23, 2022, Carlisle Police responded to a stolen vehicle report after they said Roaring Spring’s Joel Treece reported his Corvette was stolen while attending the car show.
Police worked with the PA State Police Auto Thet Task Force and the National Insurance Crime Bureau.
Carlisle Police say the investigation found that Treece received a fraudulent vehicle title for the Corvette and that the vehicle was in Ohio with someone who had owned it since the 1980s.
Police say Treece made a false insurance claim for the vehicle and was subsequently arrested.
Treece was charged with felony counterfeiting, filing a false insurance claim, laundering vehicle titles, criminal use of a communications device, and multiple misdemeanors.
Treece was released and scheduled for preliminary hearings in February.
