A new incident has been added to the more than 100 complaints regarding the ReSale 360 consignment shop that went out of business in March.
Fenton Police Chief Rick Aro said a South Lyon resident told police Tuesday she had consigned a glass table and four chairs with the store in January. She reported the item had sold for $225 on March 19 and that owners told her she would received a check for $112, because of a 50/50 agreement on the item. She told police she never received the check, however, and was unaware the store went out of business until recently.
Aro said detectives have submitted information on the cases to the Genesee County Prosecutor's Office, which requested some additional investigation from Fenton Police.
Aro has said the largest cases are people who say they owed around $1,000.
The Fenton consignment store closed its doors in March. The disputes have surfaced because consignment shop owners and consignors, who bring in items they want to sell, usually split the proceeds from their item sales 50/50 with the store.
