April 3, 2022

The owner of Mac RV Sales in McMinnville was arrested Saturday after police said an investigation revealed he and his business never compensated dozens of owners selling their vehicles through his shop.

According to the McMinnville Police Department, between May 2019 and April 2021, Ruben Dominic Bernt and his consignment business received payment for about 30 RVs but never sent the money back to the sellers, totaling more than $800,000 in losses for them.

Police said most of the business’s inventory came from private RV owners selling their vehicles on consignment. KOIN
