The New Jersey State Police are trying to track down a man they say is a con-artist and a thief who peddled stolen vehicles on Facebook.

Investigators allege Kendall Dupree, also known as Michael James Hanigan, 36, of Manhattan, was using Facebook Marketplace under the name "El Lloyd" to sell vehicles he had stolen.

As part of their investigation, state police detectives recovered seven stolen vehicles in New Jersey and neighboring states worth $265,000.

Hanigan's alleged accomplice, Christopher Gayton, 40, of Manhattan, was arrested last October on charges of selling vehicles with fraudulent titles using the "El Lloyd" Marketplace page.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Kendall Dupree or who may have purchased a vehicle from "El Lloyd" on Facebook Marketplace is asked to contact Detective I Christopher Scafidi of the State Police Motor Vehicle Crimes South Unit at Anonymous tips are welcome.
