Sarasota Man Arrested For Stolen Vehicle With Altered VIN

SARASOTA, FL. – The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Sarasota man Tuesday in connection with a stolen high-performance sports car with a replaced serial number.

Detectives launched their investigation in December after receiving a tip about car thefts, including a red Dodge Charger Hellcat. Detectives learned that Patrol deputies initiated a traffic stop on a similar vehicle driven by Dalton Moyer, 23, who was listed as the registered owner.

Upon further investigation, detectives determined the visible vehicle identification number (VIN) belonged to a blue 2015 Dodge Charger owned by Moyer that was damaged beyond repair in a previous traffic crash in Ohio.

Detectives executed a search warrant on the Charger most recently driven by Moyer and located a confidential VIN. They confirmed it was, in fact, the stolen Dodge Charger Hellcat that was repainted from red to blue.

Moyer is charged with Grand Theft of a Motor Vehicle and Possessing a Vehicle with Altered Numbers. He was released on Wednesday on a $3,000 bond.

The investigation is ongoing, and additional charges are pending.
