A collaboration between law enforcement in Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas has resulted in the arrests of three individuals allegedly involved in a vehicle theft ring spanning across the three states.

Deputies with the Adams County Sheriff’s Office on Saturday stopped a Ford Mustang on Highway 61 North near the Northgate Shopping Center in Natchez. The car was reported stolen out of Fort Bend County, Texas and the driver, identified as Ricky Ellis, was arrested and charged with receiving stolen property.

Back in early January, authorities in the southwest Mississippi county recovered a blue Ford F-150 on Harlem Lane in the Lagrange area. The vehicle had been reported stolen from Bossier Parish, La. Henry Washington, Jr., was arrested and charged with receiving stolen property.

Another suspect, Sahmaad Grayson, who was believed to be out of state when Washington happened to be arrested was caught later Monday evening and charged with two counts of possession of stolen property.

Grayson had been out on bond for an arrest in mid-February arrest in New Orleans where he was locked up for possession of a stolen vehicle. His criminal rap sheet of stealing vehicles adds up with another arrest for vehicle theft on his record stemming from an incident in New Orleans last December.

According to police, the trio of men arrested in connection to the crimes operated a multi-state stolen vehicle ring that works to scam people out of their cars after posing as buyers.
