Woman guilty for role in alleged area chop shop

A Holland woman pleaded guilty Wednesday to conspiracy for her role in an alleged chop-shop operation.

Diana L. Vannes, 32, entered the plea before U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge James Knepp II. No sentencing date was set.

Last week, Joe I. McKinney, 75, of Toledo also pleaded guilty to conspiracy in the case. Vannes and McKinney were named in a 17-count indictment filed in February charging a group of individuals with taking part in the operation, which federal prosecutors said transported stolen tractor-trailer rigs and cargo from Michigan and Indiana to Toledo where they were sold, cut up for scrap metal, or broken up for parts.
