KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A suburban Kansas City man was sentenced to five years in federal prison without parole for leading a burglary ring that sold stolen items on eBay.
Federal prosecutors say 37-year-old Nathaniel Dixon of Lee’s Summit was also ordered Tuesday to pay $104,657 in restitution and forfeit $125,921 to the government.
Prosecutors say the group stole items from vehicles of at least 144 victims in the Kansas City metropolitan area. Items from inside the vehicles, as well as tires and wheels. The items were sold on Dixon’s eBay account.
The theft ring caused a loss of about $476,000 to the victims.
In a separate case, 36-year-old Nickalass King was sentenced to three years and three months without parole for his role in the conspiracy and for violating his supervised release.
