Thank you for your follow-up, Bob.Then this is not a criminal matter, and should not be one--this is a civil matter since she signed this agreement under free will. It is too bad that she is reporting this to the police, there is no theft here, this is breach of contract on her end as well as check fraud (or rather it becomes check fraud if you cash the check and the check bounces). She is merely attempting to frighten you, if you have a valid contract for this vehicle, and more importantly, you have her signature for this vehicle, it is a valid agreement which does NOT change even if she dropped off the vehicle back with you. Her picking up the vehicle constitutes 'delivery' and concludes the contract.Good luck.
