NASHUA – Stephan Condodemetraky, the former classic car dealer who racked up a plethora of charges accusing him of forgery, theft by deception, title application fraud, witness tampering and other offenses stemming from his alleged business practices, has now been charged with two felonies following his arrest last week by Nashua police.

Condodemetraky, 52, of 2 Dorothy’s Way in Bedford, has been convicted of some charges, acquitted of others – including 20 felonies in Merrimack County in 2019 – and has others still pending, was taken into custody the afternoon of July 20 following a roughly four-month investigation by detectives with the department’s Criminal Investigation Division, police said.

He faces one count each of theft by deception and criminal liability for the conduct of another, both of which are Class A felonies.

Condodemetraky was booked on the charges, and after signing a waiver of extradition was released pending arraignment, which is scheduled for 1 p.m. Aug. 19 in Hillsborough County Superior Court South.

The new case is the second taking place in Hillsborough South. The other, opened in 2017, involves seven counts of theft by misapplication – excess of $1,501, according to the case file.

The next scheduled event in that case is a trial management conference set for 8 a.m. on Jan. 28, 2022, followed by the start of jury selection on Feb. 7, 2022.

In all, Condodemetraky’s current files show 16 civil cases and 11 criminal cases are either pending or have been settled over the past six years.

Criminal cases by jurisdiction include two in Hillsborough South and two in Merrimack County; six in Rockingham County and one in Hillsborough North.

Civil cases include seven in Rockingham County and seven in Hillsborough North; and one each in Merrimack and Grafton counties.

As for last week’s Nashua arrest, police said an investigation was launched in March after officers took a report from a local car dealership regarding the theft of five vehicles.

The vehicles, police were told, were supposed to have been transported to an auction.

Instead, detectives later learned, the vehicles ended up in the possession of Tradz LLC, “specifically, Stephan Condodemetraky,” the reports state.

Police didn’t specify Condodemetraky’s connection to Tradz LLC, which is a freight and vehicle transport carrier based in Belmont.

Police said the investigation determined that Condodemetraky allegedly “obtained control of three of the vehicles through an act of deception,” and that he allegedly “gained control of the other two vehicles through the use of another individual,” according to the reports.
