SeMo Man Gets Two Years in Prison for Operating Bootheel Chop Shop

JULY 19, 2004 - Posted at 3:20 p.m. CDT

 

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - A Missouri Bootheel man is sentenced to two years in prison for operating a chop shop that resold auto parts from stolen vehicles.

U.S. Attorney James Martin announced the sentence today for 63-year-old Thomas Wade Brook of Sikeston.  Brock pleaded guilty in May to seven federal charges.  In addition to the sentence, he was ordered to pay restitution of $49,000.

Brock operated Brock's Auto Salvage in New Madrid County.  During a routine inspection in 2003, the Missouri State Highway Patrol and other agencies seized a gun, ammunition and several auto parts from stolen vehicles.

Brock had previously been convicted in 1990 of possession and sales of vehicles with altered ID numbers.

    Considering that the University of Central Arkansas mascot is a bear, it was only natural that one should be found less than a mile from campus.
