10 Sentenced for Roles in Theft Ring in Va., Tenn.

June 23, 2010

Ten people have been sentenced for their roles in a stolen property ring that operated in Virginia and Tennessee.

U.S. Attorney Timothy J. Heaphy said Wednesday that the operation caused more than $750,000 in losses. The losses included $350,000 in damage to an office building in Abingdon that was torched to cover up a burglary.

Heaphy says heavy construction equipment, all-terrain vehicles, farm equipment and other items were stolen from more than 25 businesses and residents in Virginia and Tennessee. The items were then sold to individuals in northeast Tennessee and North Carolina who dealt in stolen property.
