LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville man is facing charges after he took a car that he planned to buy, but never paid for the vehicle and failed to return the vehicle.

An arrest warrant says the car owner allowed Kelly Wayne l, 33, to take the 1997 Ford Taurus in March 2014 on the condition that Cardwell pay for the car when he got his taxes back. Cardwell has yet to pay for the vehicle or bring it back.

Louisville Metro Police arrested Cardwell around 4 p.m. July 7 at the Kroger in the 3100 block of S. 2nd Street. He was in possession of the car at the time.
