SOUTH HACKENSACK - A Bergen County auto shop owner is accused of changing the mileage on the odometers on the cars that came into his shop.

The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office charged Alon Levin, 52, of Hillsdale with one count of computer related theft. Levin owns the HQ Custom Design auto shop in South Hackensack.

Authorities say that Levin was using specialized equipment in his shop to roll back vehicle odometers readings tens of thousands of miles. Changing the readings on the odometer could alter the value of the vehicle, according to prosecutors.

News 12 New Jersey went to Levin’s home for comment, but he did not answer.
