FBI Seeks Two St. Louis Fugitives In Auto Theft Ring Involving 21 Defendants, 100 Luxury Cars

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is looking for two St. Louis fugitives that were allegedly part of a massive auto theft ring that involved 21 men and women, more than a hundred luxury cars -- and spanned across Missouri, Illinois, Iowa and Indiana for five years.

Reginald Dante McNeary, a.k.a. "Reggie," and Morris Allen Davis, a.k.a. "Mo," are the two remaining defendants on the loose involved in the auto theft scheme that the U.S. Attorney's Office brought to light in April with a federal indictment that initially led to the arrest of sixteen individuals.

McNeary lives in the St. Louis metro area and is known to drive high-end cars, such as a Mercedes Benz, Jaguars, Cadiallac Escalades and BMWs, the FBI says. He frequents local health clubs, has associates in Missouri and Illinois -- and is armed and dangerous, the bureau says.

Now imagine losing your car and learning that the tow company that took it is actually a sham business that snags cars.

It could happen to you! An entity that goes by the name of Ingram Towing has, on multiple occasions, illegally towed cars, St. Louis County Police say. A suspect was charged this week, but officials are still urging people to report suspicious activity.

How can you spot them?

2013 St. Louis Auto Show: Mini-er than ever.
I have been attending the St. Louis Auto Show for probably twenty years now. I can recall back when the Caprice-based Impala was a concept. The Viper and Sunfire as well. The Acura NSX. And I saw them all, live and in person. Over acres and acres of jam-packed floor space. Every manufacturer and nearly every model was represented.

Oh, how times have changed.

Walking around the floor of this year's St. Louis Auto Show, I first noticed the seemingly sparse spacing of the vehicles on display. It appeared on first blush that there were more show spaces than there were participants to fill them.
