Covington police on hunt for wanted auto dealer

Mid-South police are looking for a car dealer they say was up to more than providing customers a good deal!
The charges tonight involve forgery and identity theft!

Warrants have been issued for Todd Atkins -- former owner of Todd Atkins Sales on Highway 51 in Covington.

Warrants show Atkins allegedly took out a 27-thousand dollar loan in someone else's name!
  
That's where the forgery and identity theft charges come from.

The warrants were issued Wednesday...and while police may not know where he is -- Atkins' attorney says he does!  

Atkins' attorney Cyburn Sullivan says, "He is out of town and working out of town, out of state, and he will turn himself in Tuesday morning on this."

We're told more charges could be filed against Atkins.
  
We spoke with several car lot customers who say they still don't have titles to their cars.

Covington Police are helping them work on that.
