JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Detectives in St. Johns County have arrested a repair shop owner accused of duping his customers out of thousands of dollars.

Investigators say the shop owner entered into contracts to buy or customize motorcycles with five people between October 2012 and November 2013.

Deputies told WOKV he took between $20,000 and $40,000 in partial or full payments, but customers never got their end of the bargain.

The suspect faces five counts each of grand theft and organized scheme to defraud.
