Staff Report • Nov 7, 2013 at 5:07 PM

An Elizabethton woman was arrested Wednesday on a charge that she sold her vehicle to a salvage company despite having a lien on the title in Johnson City.

Police said Wanda R. Fridley, 137 Dan Bowers Rd., Elizabethton, took out a loan from Tri Cities Finance, 3998 Bristol Hwy., on Sept. 7, 2012, using her vehicle as collateral.

She was accused of selling that same vehicle to a salvage company, where it was crushed, without paying off the loan.

Fridley was held in the Washington County Detention Center on $5,000 bond and arraigned Thursday in Sessions Court.
