The former owner of a custom home building business in Oklahoma has been sentenced to federal prison.

Dennis Lee, 45, received a 36 month sentence July 12, according to Acting U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Oklahoma Robert Troester.

Lee pleaded guilty in November to receiving, possessing, concealing and storing a stolen tractor in 2016 and felon in possession of firearms. He is accused of being involved in a ring that stole motor vehicles and other items from Texas, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska. The stolen items would then be "fenced" in Oklahoma City.

Some of the stolen property was reportedly stored at Lee's former business, Richardson Homes, LLC in southwest Oklahoma City. Lee is no longer associated with the business.

Lee will also have two years of supervised release following his term. He is required to pay restitution to victims and forfeit 16 firearms. Five other defendants in the case have pleaded guilty to charges.
