 HARRISBURG, Pa., April 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney General Ernie


Preate Jr. today announced that his office has charged the owner of a Philadelphia auto body shop with theft in connection with his alleged failure to pay to the state $34,502 in state taxes.
 Preate said the charges were filed against Larry Baker, 45, of 5236 W. Jefferson St., owner of Larry's Auto Body Shop of 815 Perkiomen St., Philadelphia.
 According to an affidavit of probable cause filed by Preate's Criminal Investigation and Prosecution Section, Baker failed to remit to the state Revenue Department $33,189 in sales tax collected from customers between November 1988 and October 1991 and $1,313 in state income tax withheld from employees' pay between January and October of 1991.

 Senior Deputy Attorney General Marsha V. Mills, who is prosecuting the case, said Baker is charged with 40 counts of theft by failure to make required disposition of funds, 22 counts of failure to file sales tax returns, four counts of failure to remit withholding tax and two counts of failure to file personal state income tax returns.
 Maximum penalties, per count, of each charge are:
