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.
