Seyller said the suspect has been charged with filing a false police report, falsely reporting a vehicle theft and phone harassment.
The man reportedly told police last week that a vehicle he had repossessed had been stolen, possibly by its owners.
A day later, a Carpentersville police officer spotted the vehicle and pulled it over. But after talking with the owner, police learned that the man had never repossessed the vehicle.
