LAFAYETTE, LA (KLFY) – A Lafayette used car dealer has been arrested and charges with a tax fraud scheme that deprived the state tens of thousands of dollars in sales tax revenue.

According to the Louisiana Department of Revenue, Larry Dwayne Brown – owner of LA Auto Sales in Lafayette – underreported the sale price of dozens of vehicles, remitted too little sales tax and pocketed the difference.

He allegedly defrauded the state an estimated $20,000.

In addition to the sales tax fraud, investigators say Brown has not filed a personal state income tax return since 2003.

Brown was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on Thursday, April 14 on charges of theft, penalty for failure to file and criminal penalty for failing to account for state tax monies.
