Supreme Court upholds ruling against Pristine

March 4th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

The West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals has upheld Circuit Court Judge Lynn Nelson’s ruling that the search warrant which resulted in the Oct. 23, 2014, raid on Pristine Pre-Owned Autos was legally obtained and executed. The Mineral Tribune reports Fernando Smith and Jamie Crabtree, former owners of the business, have each been charged with 29 felony charges of false pretenses and conspiracy, and Smith was later charged with additional counts of being an accessory before the fact in regard to false pretenses.

According to the court document issued by the Supreme Court on Thursday, West Virginia State Trooper M.L. Travelpiece had been contacted by a customer of Pristine who reported that a vehicle she had purchased from the business had been stolen.
