A Crystal man was charged Friday with one felony count of aggravated theft by swindle after stealing nearly $128,000 for several people in a car refurbishing scheme first investigated by WCCO in 2011. According to the Hennepin County Attorney’s office, 24-year-old Zachary Maxwell Moore stole $127,839 from 33 people over two years, several of whom originally paid his company, Civics Reborn, to refurbish old Honda Civics.
