Used car dealership pitchman arrested on several drug crimes

A Kansas used car dealership pitchman has been arrested on suspicion of several drug crimes.

The Wichita Eagle reports that Sedgwick County Jail booking records show that 37-year-old Aaron Christian Wirtz was arrested Tuesday and released Wednesday.  Wirtz doesn’t have a listed phone number.

He is well-known in the Wichita area as the over-the-top Super Car Guys pitchman in the used car dealership’s TV commercials.  The dealership is known for the slogan “buying a car doesn’t have to suck.”

Wichita Police Department spokesman Officer Charley Davidson said the arrest came after officers served a search warrant as part of an ongoing narcotics investigation.  Police found 1 pound of methamphetamine, 2 ounces of heroin, narcotic pills, a mushroom grow operation, drug paraphernalia and two handguns inside a home.
