A Bedford, NS used-car salesman will stand trial in Nova Scotia Supreme Court next fall on fraud-related charges.

Darren Hersh Blumenthal is accused of fraud over $5,000, using false pretences and theft by failure to pay.

The judge-alone trial for the 49-year-old is scheduled to begin Oct. 29, 2018.

Blumenthal is alleged to have defrauded a Beaver Bank couple who bought a vehicle from Great Buys Auto Sales in Lower Sackville in 2015 and returned it a week later. The couple, Melanie Pottie and Chris Bezanson, were left with more than $44,000 in loans even after they returned the car.
