DETROIT (AP) - The government says General Motors vehicle owners should recheck the company's recall identification website if previous checks indicated their cars aren't being recalled. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says GM's vehicle identification number, or VIN, look-up system has been incorrectly telling some owners that their cars aren't involved in recalls if parts for the repairs aren't ready. GM has issued 60 recalls covering 29 million vehicles this year.

Twenty-two-year-old Jasmin Dent is charged with tampering with evidence, being an accessory after the fact and filing a false report.
