Kansas Man Pleads Guilty In Farm Thefts

KSCB News - July 7, 2010 12:00 am

A Kansas man has admitted stealing farm

equipment in exchange for a three-year prison sentence.

Ryan Hanzlick of Gem pleaded guilty Tuesday to three counts of

interstate transportation of stolen farm equipment. His sentencing

was set for Sept. 17.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Alan Metzger told the 32-year-old

Hanzlick that the Kansas attorney general’s office is also

considering charges for equipment stolen in Kansas that was not

taken across state lines.

A federal indictment accused Hanzlick and co-defendant Matthew

Jones of Colby with thefts in Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma

and Wyoming.

Jones will be sentenced July 22.
