SOUTH SALT LAKE — A car dealer is accused of selling cars but failing to provide the vehicles' titles.

Michael Toscano, 42, of South Jordan, is charged with four counts of failure by a dealer to deliver a title of origin, a class A misdemeanor, according to charges filed Monday in 3rd District Court. 

Four individuals who purchased cars in November from Mike's Motors, 3830 S. Main, paying between $7,000 and $24,000, had not received the title and registration for the vehicles by mid-January.

One car buyer told police Toscano had instructed her she would have to file a complaint against his business because it was closing, charges state.
