RARITAN, NJ — A Raritan man acting as a car dealer was charged and arrested on Monday, said Rairtan Police.

Andrew Glicklich, 47, of Raritan, was charged with theft by deception, exhibiting a fictitious insurance card, and deceptive business practices on March 25.

The charges stem from an investigation by the Criminal Investigation Division. The investigation began on Nov. 2, 2023, when a Whitehouse Station woman purchased a car from Glicklich which immediately suffered numerous mechanical issues after being advised the vehicle had no mechanical issues, said police.
