FAIRFIELD, OH (FOX19) -

A Fairfield car dealership owner pleaded guilty to money laundering charges after an undercover police officer said the money used to purchase the car was drug proceeds, according to court documents.

Bryan Barbarawi, 35, faces a maximum of 20-years in prison and a fine of $250,000.

Barbarawi owned and operated the car dealership under the names of Nationwide Credit Solutions, Auto Max, Extreme Imports and Falcon Auto Sale, according to court documents. 

On Nov. 5-6, 2014, Barbarawi allegedly committed money laundering by selling a vehicle to an undercover police officer, who represented that the money used to purchase the car was drug proceeds, according to U.S. Attorney Carter M. Stewart.
