LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Nevada state attorney general says three operators of a Las Vegas vehicle repair business are accused of charging customers for repairs that weren't performed.

A grand jury indictment handed up a seven-count felony theft indictment Friday alleging that 39-year-old Yader "Tony" Gomez, 25-year-old Harold Gomez and 20-year-old Jose Gomez reaped thousands of dollars in the vehicle repair scam from February 2010 to November 2010.

The state prosecutor's office says Harold Gomez and Yader Gomez are brothers, and Jose Gomez is Tony Gomez's son.

They operated 702 Auto Care.

State Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto says vehicle owners lost money and their transportation for months.

Masto says the state Department of Motor Vehicles investigated after numerous complaints. The attorney general's Bureau of Consumer Protection is prosecuting the case.
