LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A man previously accused of running prostitution rings, human trafficking, and racketeering now faces charges for forging the transfer of a vehicle that was in his auto shop.

On September 4, LMPD issued a court summons to Ivan Deleon, 38, to face a felony charge of criminal possession of a forged instrument. The summons states on August 14, 2013, he transferred the title of a totaled car valued at over $5,000 by forging the signature of the car owner.

The car owner said she took her car to Deleon's auto shop in Jefferson County for repairs after an accident and had an insurance adjuster appraise it while it was there. The adjuster determined it was totaled but valued at over $5,000.

The summons states Deleon transferred the title of the car to another man and listed himself as the primary lien holder. The car owner said she discovered her signature was forged on the certificate of title to complete the transfer.

The victim obtained a copy of the title and registration from the Jefferson County Clerk's Office and reported it to police. LMPD took the car into their impoundment lot.

The summons says if Deleon does not show up for court in Jefferson County on September 23 a warrant will be issued for his arrest.
