BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - On July 16 and 17, a mobile vehicle repair licensing compliance operation was conducted by the California Bureau of Automotive Repair with assistance from the California Highway Patrol.
Agents from BAR placed telephone calls to social media postings soliciting mobile vehicle repair.
Appointments were made and subjects responded to a residence where plain clothes officers from the California Highway Patrol posed as vehicle owners.
The subjects then examined the vehicle and provided an estimate for repairs.
During the two day operation, 18 people were contacted with 15 determined to be unlicensed for vehicle repair, a misdemeanor punishable by a fine not exceeding $1,000 or six months in jail.
A complaint will be filed with the Kern County District Attorney's Office for all of the unlicensed parties.
One person was arrested for being under the influence of a controlled substance.
