WNCN is reporting that what police say was a nationwide ring of interconnected auto dealership thefts, has been broken with the help of a local police detective in Lillington. When a group of thieves hit Hiester Dodge/Jeep/Chrysler automotive dealership last December, it led police to what they say was a massive auto theft conspiracy. The Hiester dealership in Lillington was just one of many that were targeted. So far 10 suspects have been arrested. The FBI is now involved.
