Mechanic ran off with my car

Im desperate to get my car back, Garsfontein police station wont help me, My car (alfa romeo 147) was towed to Leon van der Walt 072-6226365 154 Bremer st Pretoria Gardens, he had to repair a blown head gasket. He gave me the run around for a month and asked that i pay in R12 000 to buy parts and pay engineering company for work done on the head.Leon moved and promised week by week that my car will be ready. He decided he wont be answering my calls anymore and only way i get to talk to him is by phoning from pvt numbers. He doesnt want to tell me where my car is and he basically used my R12 000 to move his premises , now he doesnt have money to fix my car! If anybody can assist pls....i dont know what to do anymore!!!

    Hi Ray, I recovered my vehicle around 10 months later. The problem is that the police don't want to assist and don't care. By law he legally possessed my car because I gave permission and that's that. I eventually spoke to a lawyer and they put me in touch with constable at the Weirdabrug police station and I went to go see him. He eventually got the address after saying the car will be reported stolen and they will go and arrest him. which by law they cant. I got tow truck to go and collect and sold my car for R7500 because the whole motor and gearbox was stripped. He had another 5 or 6 cars on his property with people probably in the same position. First attempt to get the address took me to his parents property with another 5 vehicles, nobody answered. if you have laywers I would suggest you send him a letter and they lawyers usually have some connections that will be able to assist
