UPDATE: Acting Coffs/Clarence Crime Manager Detective Sergeant Ian Corcoran updated local media on the latest information regarding an on-going investigation into car re-birthing.
A MAN has been charged with fraud-related offences following a police investigation into car re-birthing on the Coffs Coast.

The man was granted conditional bail to appear in Coffs Harbour Local Court on Monday, May 30.
