California Men Admit Roles in Kansas Cargo Theft Case

November 5, 2013
 
 

Two California men have admitted their part in the attempted theft of beef from a Kansas slaughterhouse. Prosecutors say the case exemplifies a relatively new form of identity theft in which suspects pose as a legitimate trucking firm to steal cargo.

Fifty-three year old Oganes Nagapetian pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court in Wichita to conspiracy to commit interstate shipment fraud. His 50-year-old brother, Tigran Nagapetian, pleaded guilty to misprision of a felony for lying to Kansas state troopers and concealing his brother's actions. Both are from North Hollywood, Calif.

U.S. District Judge Monti Belot set sentencing for Jan. 27.

Federal prosecutors charged the brothers with the attempted theft in 2011 of packaged beef valued at $87,500 from the Tyson Fresh Meats plant in Holcomb.
