GREENFIELD, Mo. -- A man and his daughter from Springfield are charged in Dade County for what investigators say was a massive drug and theft ring that has victims in several counties. George Dumm, 57, and Jessica Dumm, 32, were each charged last week with one count of receiving stolen property worth more than $25,000.
Investigators served a search warrant on a rural property northeast of Greenfield on April 23, and spent the days since then sorting through suspected stolen goods worth tens of thousands of dollars. The recovered property at 636 East Dade 68 Road included an ATV, tractor, propane tanks, tires, lumber, ladders, power tools, and concrete tools. When investigators reported to a judge what they found during the raid, the list covered 13 pages.
Dade County Sheriff Steve Stapp says George Dumm bought the property but deeded it to his daughter. Stapp says the county is going through the courts to seize the real estate, since they believe it was used in the commission of a crime.
