Man To Be Sentenced In 5 State Farm Theft

KSCB News - September 29, 2010 12:00 am

A man convicted of stealing farm equipment

and transporting it to his Kansas farm faces sentencing in a

five-state theft operation.

Matthew T. Jones was scheduled to go before U.S. District Judge

Eric Melgren on Wednesday in federal court in Wichita.

Jones pleaded guilty in May to three counts of interstate

transportation of stolen goods. He agreed to pay $1.15 million in

restitution.

Prosecutors say Jones and co-defendant Ryan Hanzlick stole large

pieces of farm equipment between 2005 and 2008 from Wyoming,

Nebraska, Oklahoma, Kansas and Colorado.

Hanzlick was sentenced earlier this month to three years in

prison and ordered to pay $329,900.
