Alleged Innisfail car dealer theft case set
The Crown’s case against an Innisfail car dealer accused of bilking four people out of roughly $1 million will be weighed in Red Deer provincial court in October.
Allister Loughlin, 49, has pleaded not guilty and asked to be tried by provincial court judge on four charges of theft over $5,000.
Complaints were reported to Innisfail RCMP in July and the charges were laid in November.
Loughlin was operator of G.H. Auto and Innisfail Park & Self Storage, which closed in 2011.
A preliminary hearing on the charges has been scheduled for Oct. 18. The hearing will be used to determine whether the Crown has sufficient evidence to proceed to trial.
