All Charges Dropped Against man who Once Faced 134 Felonies

WALTON COUNTY, Fla. - All the charges have now been dropped against a Walton man who once faced 134 felonies. 

Double AA Auto Salvage owner Mark Runge was arrested last July and charged by the Walton County Sheriff's Office for failing to report 134 vehicles to 'leads online.' That's the county's database for reporting second hand and scrap material sold.

In a news release at the time deputies wrote that they have received a report regarding stolen vehicles being sold to Runge's business. 

Runge told News 13 Monday that he wanted to make sure the community was aware that his business followed the law and that he never accepted or dealt in stolen cars. That was proven, Runge said, as his case progressed through the court system.

"We are glad to see this issue has been resolved. We have been working to bring this matter to a satisfactory closure since the beginning," Walton Sheriff's officials wrote in a news release. "Mr. Runge's business is now in full compliance and charges are no longer necessary."
