ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A former Albuquerque auto dealer, faced with an ailing economy and difficulty getting credit for his dealership, says he turned to gambling last year in a bid to salvage the business.

Ken Zangara racked up a $250,000 gambling loss just months before he closed his dealership in February. He says he was trying to win enough money to save the business.

Zangara and his wife filed for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy Oct. 20.

Zangara Dodge closed its doors Feb. 17, citing the economic crisis and loss of its primary lending source.

At the time, Zangara Dodge was under investigation by the state attorney general's office for numerous consumer complaints over alleged illegal business practices.
