Man who tried to buy Dodge Challengers with stolen ID gets prison

The Wichita Eagle

A federal judge on Monday ordered a Wichita man to serve 28 months in prison for using stolen identities to get car loans.

Reu Charles Chamberlain, 31, admitted to using someone else’s personal information to qualify for a $48,902 loan for a 2016 Dodge Challenger at Eddy’s Chrysler Jeep Dodge and for a $44,746 loan for a 2015 Dodge Challenger at Midway Motors, U.S. Attorney Tom Beall said in a news release. Both of the dealerships are in Wichita.

Chamberlain pleaded guilty to two counts of wire fraud, Beall said. The sentence is in addition to the 20 months he’s already served on the case, Beall said.
