The arrest of Victor Decker, 43, follows a joint probe by investigators from the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office and New Jersey State Police.

Decker owns and operates 1st Class Auto Restorationof Freehold; First Class Auto Restoration of Asbury Park;  and Perfect Touch Auto Restoration of Freehold, Asbury Park and Wall.

Investigators allege that Decker took payment, then stripped, damaged and sometimes destroyed the vehicles. They charge that many cars were never returned to their owners, and some have disappeared altogether.

Decker is charged with second-degree theft by deception. If he’s convicted at trial, he risks up to 10 years imprisonment.

The probe is ongoing. Anyone with information that can help investigators should call Detective Edward Finlay of the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office in Freehold, 732-431-7160, extension 5838; or New Jersey State Trooper Michael Hughes in Trenton, 609-296-3132.
