OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - A WLOX News Action Report has led to the arrest of a used car dealer. Ocean Springs Police credit information in a WLOX News Action Report last month in their investigation of Rusty Keenum, owner of TK Motors in Biloxi.

Keenum is charged with two counts of felony false pretense.

At least a dozen people who purchased used cars through TK Motors contacted Action Reporter A.J. Giardina. They all told him they paid for cars, but never received them. Some of the customers told WLOX News they had been waiting two weeks for their cars; in a couple of cases customers say they waited two months for their vehicles.

Keenum was arrested Monday. Ocean Springs police say other police departments in the area are also investigating Keenum. Action Reporter A.J. Giardina will have the latest on this case on WLOX News at 6 p.m.
