Southwest Regional Police are looking for a Bentleyville man wanted on fraud charges.

Police said Timothy Rossell, 24, of 721 Main St., identified himself as a Missouri state trooper relocating to Pennsylvania when he arranged to sell a vehicle to Levi Mattey on Dec. 1.

Police said Mattey, of Charleroi, agreed to purchase the vehicle from Rossell – who told him his name was Timothy Michael Keller – for $650, plus $150 for fuel. Mattey said he paid for the vehicle but never received it and couldn't get in touch with the seller afterward.

Police discovered Keller was actually Rossell, and charged him with forgery, theft by deception, deceptive business practices, identity theft, and impersonating a public servant.

Police said Rossell is under investigation for other alleged fraud activity. Charges and a warrant for his arrest were filed at the Ellsworth office of Magisterial District Judge Curtis Thompson.

Anyone with information about Rossell is asked to call police at 724-929-8484 or on Facebook at Southwest Reg Pd.
