Colebrook man charged with issuing fake inspection stickers at NH autoshop
COLEBROOK — Police arrested a man after a routine audit of his automobile dealership and inspection station uncovered false inspection stickers on several vehicles for sale.
Michael Robinson, 47, of Colebrook, was charged with counterfeit, unauthorized or forged stickers after an audit of his facility, Robinson's Repairs. Police, along with an automotive equipment inspector, were conducting the audit on Tuesday when they discovered the facility was unable to account for numerous state inspection stickers.
Police found an inspection sticker that belonged on a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado but was actually displayed on a 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer. Several vehicles that were offered for sale on the property had fraudulent inspection stickers affixed to the windshields.
Robinson is an approved State of New Hampshire mechanic.
He was taken into custody without incident and was released on $250 cash bail and is pending an arraignment at the Colebrook Court on December 15, 2016.
