Men suspected in appliance theft ring

September 13, 2012

Danville police apprehended two men Wednesday who they say stole about $1,500 in appliances from a foreclosed home and could be part of an even bigger crime ring. Repair shop truck driver Nick King and housing inspector Steven Atkins may be involved in taking hundreds of appliances from dozens of foreclosed homes in the Indianapolis area over the past decade. Detectives also discovered a large marijuana-growing operation in a repair shop owned by King’s father. King and Adkins are being held in the Hendricks County Jail awaiting charges.
