WOMAN ARRESTED FOR PURCHASE OF 5 VEHICLES WITH COUNTERFEIT CHECKS
A woman has been arrested in reference to passing fraudulent checks at a local car dealership for the purchase of five different vehicles.
On November 16, 2010, Deluca Toyota, located at 1719 SW College Rd. in Ocala, reported that fraud had been committed against the company between October 20, 2010 and November 7, 2010. They reported that a subject had come in and passed counterfeit checks for the purchase of 5 different vehicles. Total invoice purchase price for all five vehicles was approximately $195,576.59.

Originally, personal checks were written for four of the cars; each purchased on a different date. One of the checks, written for $28,430.00, bounced when the dealership attempted to deposit it. The purchaser, w/f Kristina Evelyn Reinwalt, DOB 12/25/78, was contacted about this and agreed to correct this problem. Reinwalt went to the dealership on November 6, 2010, and presented a cashier’s check in the amount of $128,872.56 to cover the cost of the first four vehicles purchased. Additionally, on the following date, November 7, 2010, Reinwalt then purchased a fifth vehicle and presented a cashier’s check for $68,000.00 to pay for it.
Both of these cashier’s checks were later found to be counterfeit.

The vehicles purchased were as follows:

10/20/10 2010 Toyota Tundra $47,112.37
10/21/10 2011 Toyota Scion TC $29,430.00
10/22/10 2011 Toyota Tacoma $25,930.19
10/24/10 2010 Toyota Corolla $25,900.00
11/07/10 2010 Toyota Sequoia $67,204.03

On the same date of the report, 11/16/10, Detective Wayne Greene obtained the invoices on the vehicle and responded to an address in Belleview, FL, which is the residence of Reinwalt’s grandfather. Once there, they recovered the 2010 Toyota Tundra, the 2011 Toyota Scion TC, and the 2011 Toyota Tacoma. The 2011 Toyota Corolla was recovered at Reinwalt’s sister-in-law’s residence in Springfield, GA. The 2010 Toyota Sequoia was recovered by the dealership at the same residence in Belleview as the first three.

During the course of his investigation Det. Greene learned that the Marion County Sheriff’s Office was also working a case involving the utterance of a counterfeit check by Reinwalt in their jurisdiction. Det. Greene made contact with Reinwalt at her grandfather’s residence on today’s date, 11/17/10, and she was transported to the MCSO South District Office. She was interviewed by Det. Greene and Investigator T. Tucker of MCSO and did make statements admitting to the passing of the counterfeit checks.

Reinwalt was charged by Inv. Tucker in the MCSO case and was charged with one count of Organized Fraud (Over $50,000.00) by Det. Greene of OPD. Additionally, she was booked in on a Violation of Probation, which has a No Bond. She was transported and booked into the Marion County Jail.
