Man arrested for three felonies after attempting to defraud rental car company

A 22-year-old man was arrested after attempting to defraud a rental car company Sunday night.

Orange County Sheriff’s deputies at about 6 p.m. on March 11 responded to the Avis car rental desk stationed at John Wayne Airport after a manager reported a male suspect attempted to rent a Range Rover with what appeared to be invalid identification and credits cards.

After an investigation, deputies arrested the 22-year-old on suspicion of felony burglary, forgery and attempted grand theft auto.

We’re thankful the manager of Avis noticed something amiss and contacted the department immediately. His swift action led to a quick arrest.
