Oklahoma home builder sentenced to three years in theft case

The Associated Press - July 13, 2018 9:01 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – An Oklahoma custom home builder has been sentenced to three years in a federal prison in connection with an interstate theft ring.
Federal prosecutors said Thursday that 45-year-old Dennis Lee pleaded guilty in November to possession of stolen property that crossed a state boundary and possession of a firearm after a felony conviction.
A five-count indictment handed up last year alleged Lee was involved in the theft of vehicles and other items from Texas, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska. The stolen items were allegedly transported to the Oklahoma City area and sold.
Prosecutors say some of the stolen property was stored at Lee’s business, Richardson Homes, LLC, of Oklahoma City. Among other things, Lee must pay restitution to victims of the theft ring and will be required to forfeit 16 firearms.
