OMAHA, NEB. (AP) - Police in Utah have arrested two missing executives from a western Nebraska car dealership where 81 vehicles worth roughly $2.5 million vanished, and a third executive plans to surrender.

John Childress, Scotts Bluff County’s chief deputy county attorney, said Thursday that Legacy Auto Sales’ 52-year-old owner Allen Patch and 37-year-old controller Rachel Fait had been arrested in Tooele County, Utah.

The dealership’s 53-year-old general manager, Rick Covello, had returned to Scottsbluff, where the dealership is located, and planned to turn himself in after consulting a lawyer.

About two dozen missing vehicles were traced to Salt Lake City. Six others were found at the Scottsbluff airport, and the FBI found some of the other vehicles in Las Vegas.
