Middletown Police break up luxury car theft ring


Middletown Police arrested two men this week in connection with a car theft ring that aimed to shipped luxury vehicles overseas.

The department’s Criminal Investigation Unit acted on information that an industrial garage on the 200 block of West Lake Street was being used as location for stolen vehicles that were headed overseas.

During the execution of the warrant Henry Sencherey,39, was seen driving a 2018 Maserati into the garage. He was taken into custody without incident.

Further investigation revealed the vehicle was stolen in Illinois in April. Also taken into custody was Rex Agumey,49, who had been seen loading vehicles into a large trailer.

Additional vehicles recovered included a 2011 Audi A5 and a 2017 BMW X5, both traced to stolen vehicle reports from New Jersey.

Both Sencherey and Agumey were each charged with three counts of Receiving Stolen Property over $1,500 (Felony) and Conspiracy 2nd. They were both taken to Howard Young Correctional Facility after not posting $8,000 cash bond.
