Car wholesaler accused of stealing from Bill Walsh Automotive Group

Posted by wlpo on August 1, 2016

A Minooka man is accused of trying to pull a fast one on the Bill Walsh Automotive Group in Ottawa.

Back in May, Ottawa Police were approached about a potential theft in which vehicles bought and sold to the car dealership by wholesaler Peter Kapellas weren’t as advertised. A warrant for felony theft and deceptive practice was issued for Kapellas and he turned himself in Thursday to Minooka Police.

He’s accused of giving a bad check and deceiving the dealership in giving him property valued from $10,000 to $100,000. Kapellas has since posted $3,000 for bond and is out of custody.
