RALEIGH — The head of a Raleigh auto shop is accused of submitting false diagnostic tests for state vehicle inspections.
John Anthony Markovitz of 1920 Malindo Court was charged Monday with four felony counts related to electronic vehicle inspections.
An arrest warrant accuses Markovitz of using surrogate vehicles, in one case allegedly manipulating the inspection of a 1999 Ford Mustang by using the on-board diagnostic system of a 2001 Ford F150.
Markovitz is listed in state documents as president of J & A Tire and Brake Inc. at 4436 Durham Road in Raleigh.
Markovitz, 51, was arrested Monday and posted $5,000 bond at the Wake County Detention Center on the same day, according to county records.
