State police arrest a Cumberland couple on dozens of forgery charges.

Police arrested Paul Casolari and his wife Christy.
Paul Casolari alone is facing more than 100 counts of forgery.

Police say while Casolari was a finance manager at Creech Chevrolet in Harlan ...he was stealing identities of customers and using them to purchase vehicles for resale.
Casolari allegedly then sold the vehicles online.

Police say for more than two years Paul Casolari stole people's identify while he worked at Creech Chevrolet in Harlan ... but that's not all.

"He was not only purchasing the vehicles ... but during incentives programs... he was keeping the incentives," said Walt Meachum with Kentucky State Police.

Police say about a dozen Creech costumers are victims of identity theft... police say the couple used the victim's names multiple times in some cases. Workers at the dealership declined to comment.

Police say this is not the first time for Casolari to be arrested. In 2009 he was put behind bars on similar forgery charges.

"They do it until they get caught is the bottom line... they know it will happen but they do it as long as they can go," said Meachum.

Christy Casolari was also arrested on theft related charges.
Casolari and his wife are no longer behind bars.
They both posted surety bond and were released for 25 dollars each.

"Judges set that by statue. We do the investigation... We make the arrests and put them in jail...after that it's out of our hands and is up to the court systems," said Meachum.

The couple could not be reached for comment.
