WAGONER, Okla. (AP) -- Sequoyah County authorities say a man accused of operating an illegal chop shop has been sentenced to 20 years in a state prison.

District Attorney Richard L. Gray says Dennis Robbins pleaded guilty Tuesday in state district court in Wagoner.

Robbins pleaded guilty to one count of operating a chop shop. A chop shop is a place where stolen vehicles are stripped of salable parts.

Gray says Robbins also pleaded guilty three counts of possession of a stolen vehicle and three counts of altering vehicle identification.

In addition, Robbins entered guilty pleas to one count of third-degree arson and one count of possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute.
