An Albuquerque mechanic has been arrested.
Orlando Parada is accused of taking a woman’s insurance check to fix her car and never finishing the work.
Parada faced a judge on Saturday.
He is charged with embezzlement of a vehicle.
Police say they found the woman’s car stripped inside Parada’s shop at Morris and Menaul.
Parada claims he was not given enough money to do all the work that the car needed.
