Grand Jury Returns Indictment Charging Two Michigan Men with Stealing Vehicles from Butler County Dealerships

PITTSBURGH, PA - A federal grand jury returned a superseding indictment charging two residents of Michigan with Conspiracy and Interstate Transportation of Stolen Motor Vehicles, United States Attorney Cindy K. Chung announced today.

The three-count Superseding Indictment named Dorale Leshawn Doyle, age 40, of Southfield, MI 40833, and Ladon Richard Rogers, age 39, of Allen Park, MI 48101, as defendants.

According to the Superseding Indictment, from Nov 1, 2021, to Aug. 3, 2022, Doyle and Rogers engaged in a scheme in which they would travel from Michigan to various locations in the Western District of Pennsylvania to steal Dodge Challenger Hellcats. Two of the victim dealerships were located in Butler County, Pennsylvania.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of 15 years in prison, a fine of $500,000 or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant United States Attorney Shaun E. Sweeney is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The Western Regional Auto Theft Task Force, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Butler Township Police, Southfield Michigan Police Department, Livingston County Michigan Sheriff’s Office, Michigan State Police and DEA Detroit Group 15 conducted the investigation leading to the Superseding Indictment in this case.

A Superseding Indictment is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
