Rock Hill auto repair shop owner arrested on 'tax charge'
Jan 26, 2013 (The Herald (Rock Hill - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
The owner of a Rock Hill auto repair shop was arrested on Friday on a charge of operating his business without a retail license, according to booking officials at the Moss Justice Detention Center.
Robert Shields, 63, of Rock Hill is the owner of Bavarian Auto Service on Dunlap Roddey Road, according to a news release sent by the S.C. Department of Revenue on Friday.
He was arrested, the news release states, on a "tax charge."
The Bavarian Auto Service's retail license was first revoked in May 2010, the news release states.
Almost one year later, Shields obtained a second retail license for a company registered as B.A.S., according to the Department of Revenue.
After an investigation, the department determined that B.A.S. and Bavarian Auto Service were "one in the same," the news release states.
The Better Business Bureau's website lists Bavarian Auto Service as an unaccredited business.
The Herald tried to reach the business and Shields on Friday and Saturday. Three numbers listed in the phone book for Shields or his auto service business are not working numbers.
Shields was released from the York County Detention Center on a $1,000 bond by Saturday morning.
If he's convicted, the Department of Revenue news releases states that Shields faces 30 days in jail or a $200 fine.
