A Pontiac man is accused of stealing a used car from a dealership in Ferndale nine days after he was paroled from prison on his last conviction for the same charge. The stolen car and the suspect were later found at a hospital in Pontiac where police said he tried to pass himself off as a custodian, which led to police being called. Darayle Mixon, 29, was in Ferndale 43rd District Court for a hearing Monday and faces a preliminary examination next week. Employees at the Pure Honda dealership, 21350 Woodward Ave.
