SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – The owner of a custom motorcycle shop in Scottsdale has been arrested for fraud following a two-year-investigation.
Gerie Leigh Clayton, 64, was arrested on Nov. 20 for two felony counts of theft by misrepresentation.
Clayton owns Sucker Punch Sally's near Hayden Road and Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard.
According to Scottsdale police, Clayton defrauded victims from Canada and North Carolina out of more than $34,000 for "Bobber" custom motorcycles that were never delivered.
Detectives also discovered that there were 16 civil judgments in Maricopa County Superior Court against Sucker Punch Sally's since 2010, totaling over $3.6 million. Six of the judgments list Clayton as a co-defendant.
Police believe there may be more victims who have not yet come forward.
Anyone who feels defrauded by this business is asked to call police at 480-312-5000.
