MISHAWAKA, Ind. A Mishawaka car dealer has admitted to rolling back odometers.

Adame Scott, 28, agreed Wednesday to plead guilty to two counts of odometer fraud.

But he still faces charges of theft and carjacking in a separate case.
Scott was arrested in August, after the St. Joseph County Sheriff's Department seized paperwork and several cars from Scott's Auto Sales.

Dozens of victims came forward with stories of being scammed.

Scott was arrested again later, for allegedly carjacking a former customer's car.
