Elkhart man sentenced in connection with auto theft from Goshen car dealership

An Elkhart man was sentenced by plea agreement in connection with an auto theft from a Goshen car dealership. 

Court documents say an officer found a blue Chevrolet Cavalier reported as stolen driving down Lincolnway East in June of last year.

The vehicle pulled into 24/7 cars and the driver got out and grabbed a red bag from the vehicle before walking to Walmart.

Police located him again on a trail behind Century Drive. The Goshen News says the man gave false information but that facial recognition helped identify him as Dallas Blankenship III.

Blankenship’s criminal history includes several other auto thefts and possession of stolen property charges.

He was sentenced to three years at the Elkhart County Jail with two of them on probation.
