Guilty plea filed in theft, fraud ring

Starr

A Fort Wayne man behind a pair of theft rings pleaded guilty in Allen Superior Court.

Chanse T. Starr, 39, of the 600 block of Wagner Street, pleaded guilty Feb. 17 to charges in two separate cases.

In both cases, Starr organized a group of people to break into cars and steal credit cards, which were later used to buy electronics for sale online, according to court documents.

He pleaded guilty to charges of theft and two counts of corrupt business influence, as well as admitting to being a habitual offender.

In exchange for his guilty plea, he will be sentenced to six years in prison.

The state opposes his placement in work release or anywhere other than prison, according to court documents.

Another person involved in the thefts, Tonya S. Koenig, also pleaded guilty last week to a charge of corrupt business influence. She will be sentenced to four years in prison, according to court documents.
