Sunbelt Nissan Manager Steals from Car Dealership

UPDATE BELOW:
The former used car manager at Sun Belt Nissan was charged Wednesday with felony theft for stealing over $11,000 from the car dealership, according to a sheriff’s report.

Alan Doss, 53, of Augusta, is being held in the Richmond County Jail on one count of felony theft by taking. Bond is $5,700.

Mike Watson, the Vice President at Sunbelt Nissan, told authorities that Doss was deceiving the company by taking cash from customers for his own personal use, a report says.

At least three times, Doss stole money over the summer while working at the Peach Orchard location. At one point, he took $8,400 from a customer for a down payment on a vehicle, wrote the customer a receipt and also filled out a bill of sale.

The manager also took $2,500 and $340 from other customers, the sheriff’s report says.

“Doss was asked for the bill of sale from the Financial Director, Barbara Robinson, to which Robinson stated that Doss would tell her that he would get the bill of sale to her on a later date. Robinson stated that when Doss did turn in the bill of sale which would be days later, he had no explanation of where the money was,” the sheriff’s report says. “After Doss’ termination, Doss sent … an email stating that he would like to pay the money back to Sunbelt Nissan and that he did not mean to hurt anyone.”

UPDATE: Sunbelt Nissan Dealer Mike Watson released this statement Thursday, saying that no customer lost money in this theft.

“The customers lost nothing. No customers’ actual money was taken. This was dealership money,” Watson said. “We protected the customers’ interest.”
