Four SeMo Men Arrested in Multi-State Theft Ring

BENTON, MO (KAIT) - Police in Scott County have arrested four southeast Missouri men as part of a suspected larceny ring spanning nine states and involving several hundred thousand dollars.

Greg Casey, 37, of Sikeston, 37-year-old Larry Dixon of Advance, Brian Burton of Benton and 37-year-old Brian Lamber of Sikeston are charged with conspiracy to commit auto theft.

A $1 million bond was set for Casey, and at $750,000 for the other three suspects.  All four men are being held in the Scott County Jail, but may be extradited to DeKalb County, Illinois, the suspected base of the alleged theft ring, to face potential related charges.

The investigation began in January.
