Man Admits to Posing As Tow-Truck Driver

Tuesday in District Court, a man pleaded no contest to posing as a tow-truck driver to steal a car and attempt to exchange it for cash. 

In February, police responded to a suspicious call about a white truck with no license plates towing a black SUV.  

The tags on the black SUV were expired and it was marked by authorities as an abandoned vehicle. 

When confronted, Andrew Scott told police the owners gave him permission to take the SUV for scrap metal. 

The owners said...they didn't. 

Now Scott faces up to four years in prison. 

A car can be exchanged for scrap metal for a few hundred dollars.
