Bad day for the guy that "financed" a $55,426 Ford F150 pickup truck for no money down at Rye Ford on February 7th with a false identity, stealing the vehicle. The Rye theft, plus two more at Cortlandt and Mt. Kisco, has Milton Alequin headed for 3.5 7 years in state prison. So much for those dreams of driving off to Zihuatanejo…

Alequin, again using personal identifying and financial information of a second victim, financed a black 2018 Ford F150 pickup truck for $55,426.00 at Rye Ford. The defendant also provided a forged New Jersey driver’s license to the dealership and signed multiple documents in the victim’s name. The defendant also provided a forged satellite television bill as proof of residence…
