Toms River Man Accused of Car Restoration Ripoff

A Toms River 33-year-old working at a car restoration business in Jackson is accused of  taking tens of thousands over several years from an antique auto owner for work never actually done. Investigators believe that there might be more than one victim.

Ryan Mahoney is charged with theft by deception. He was apprehended Friday at Coastal Classics LLC on Faraday Road.

According to information fron Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato’s office, Mahoney allegedly collected $58.591.81 from Michael Wilkowski of Toms River between August 15, 2006 and October 29, 2009, to recondition a 1948 Chevrolet Coupe.

Detectives say that the car now sits with no engine, transmission, drive shaft, suspension or original glass.

Mahoney’s bail at the Ocean County Jail in Toms River was set at $35,000.

If you believe that you have been victimized similarly, county investigators want to hear from you. Reach their office at 732-929-2027.
