Three people have been arrested at auto dealerships in Cabarrus County and accused of selling auto insurance without being licensed by the state.
The N.C. Department of Insurance said each of the three was working for a different auto dealership as a sales representative and allegedly sold insurance policies on the vehicles.
According to state investigators, the suspects accepted money for the insurance policies during sales of vehicles in February and March. State officials did not name the dealerships involved.
Authorities said Corey Sean Hamilton, 24, and Rose Rios Hernandez, 33, each of Midland, were charged with two counts of obtaining property by false pretense and acting as an insurance agent without a license.
Marc Stacy Glover, 46, of Albemarle, was charged with one count of obtaining property by false pretense and acting as an insurance agent without a license.
State insurance officials said that because the three are not licensed, the policies they sold are not valid.
