Springs Transmissions and Automotive owner, Greg Ehnes, is facing more charges Wednesday.

Ehnes was arrested at his business in the 3300 block of Chelton Loop Wednesday morning by Colorado Springs Police on a warrant.  He is charged with felony theft and crimes against at-risk adults.

Last month, Ehnes and his employees Donald McKnight and Jason White were charged with false reporting to authorities and conspiracy, both misdemeanor charges.  Police said McKnight and White were driving the customer's car in July when they crashed into a guardrail on I-25 in Fountain and fled the scene. Police said Ehnes knew about the crash as well as his employees' false report that they were held at gunpoint by two men who stole the car.

Springs Transmission and Automotive is being investigated by Colorado Springs Police for possible theft through fraudulent business practices. Police said there may be upwards of 50 victims.
