The owner of a Milton, Ont. used car dealership has pleaded guilty to several identity fraud charges after registering cars to people who did not own them.

Halton Regional Police originally began their investigation into the Incarnet dealership after a man allegedly received notices for traffic violations and parking offences for a vehicle he did not own.

Police later arrested Incarnet owner Jan Kowalczyk along with his son.

Both men were jointly charged on 12 counts including multiple instances of identity fraud, but says Kowalczyk reached a plea agreement that saw charges against his son dropped.

Kowalczyk pleaded guilty to five counts of identity fraud and one count of uttering a forged document last week.
