We have taken several reports of citizens purchasing vehicles out of Texas (in the Fort Worth/Dallas area) and then those vehicles later being impounded or seized due to them being stolen out of Texas.

Please be aware prior to purchasing a vehicle out of state or even in-state verify the owner, vehicle, and VIN through the state you are purchasing from DPS.

Each vehicle owner was given a forged title and other forged documents to go along with the vehicle but was later confirmed stolen.

These vehicles are mostly being advertised on Craigslist as well.

Please be vigilant and if you have any questions you can always contact the Sheriff’s Office at 405-282-4100. Thank you!
