Theft Ring Indictments
Page 2

On Monday, March 24, a Grand Jury returned indictments on Damon J. Buis, 35, Mollie N. Mobley, 21, Arlin Wayne Rollins, 26, Ester Braxton Goins, 23, and Archie L. Stevens, 58. The five were indicted on charges of Criminal Syndication for their part in a theft ring that extended not only into surrounding counties, but even into the state of Tennessee. The charges were presented to the Grand Jury by Detective Bob West of the McCreary County Sheriff's Department, who has been conducting an investigation since August.

According to the indictment, from April 1 through July 30, 2007, the five were engaged in organized crime "with each other and others not specifically named". The indictment further charges that they were engaged in theft, possession of stolen property, sale of stolen property, and distribution/transportation of stolen property in McCreary and surrounding counties. The stolen items were "fenced" through Tennessee, in an apparent operation in which orders could be placed by the "fence", and then the items requested would be located and stolen. 

By the definition of KRS506.120(3)(c), a Criminal Syndicate means five (5) or more persons collaborating to promote or engage in …any theft offense as defined in KRS Chapter 514… on a continuing basis.
