Tennessee Highway Patrol's Criminal Investigation Division Arrests Man On Odometer Fraud And Identity Theft Charges

Friday, March 14, 2014

The Tennessee Highway Patrol’s Criminal Investigation Division arrested Patrick Wayne Davis for odometer fraud, identity theft and felony theft on Tuesday in Knoxville. Davis allegedly altered the odometer of a 2004 Honda Accord over 120,000 miles. He then fraudulently advertised the vehicle on “Craigslist “as a low mileage vehicle and subsequently sold it at much higher price.

This case stemmed from a complaint taken by the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office in Cleveland. Bradley County then requested the assistance of the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

THP Sergeant Thomas Clower, working with the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, was able to identify Davis as a suspect in their initial investigation. They discovered that Davis illegally acted as the original owner of the Honda by taking the name of a man from Michigan. Agents with the Highway Patrol’s CID also located physical evidence in the Honda Accord.

On Thursday, Sergeant Clower and THP Interdiction Plus Sergeant Greg Roberts located Mr. Davis in Knoxville. Davis was arrested on odometer fraud, theft between $1,000 to $10,000 and identity theft. He was booked in the Knox County Jail. A court date will be set for the Knox County Criminal Court.
