Dennis Hesman was arrested on June 4, 2014 for ten counts Theft by Deception and one count of Criminal Conspiracy, all Class 3 Felonies.
On Tuesday, Fremont police announced the arrests of two suspected co-conspirators: Kathy Springer-Hesman, 50, and Joleen Cameron, 42.

Hesman's former employer, Gavilon Grain, discovered an embezzlement scheme after Hesman retired from the company. The investigation revealed that Hesman had falsified documents while working for the company between 2007 and 2013.
The FBI was also notified. The agency is investigating possible federal charges.
