Hermann man charged with murder also charged with stealing a vehicle out of Columbia

A Hermann man charged with murder has been charged with stealing a vehicle after Columbia police were dispatched to a past fraud report at the Joe Machens Ford dealership, police say.

Police said Nathan Hendricks stole a vehicle from the dealership by passing a bad check in October.

Officers said the vehicle was a 1990 Chevrolet Corvette and the check was in the amount of $9,500.

The check was given to the dealership, and a day later, Hendricks took the vehicle, police said.

A couple days later, the dealership was notified that the check was issued from a fraudulent account.

According to the probable cause statement, Hendricks has previously been arrested for fraud, passing a bad check on multiple occasions, theft, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Hendricks was accused of murder, armed criminal action and burglary after a 72-year-old man was killed in Independence. Independence police were searching for him on Nov. 8 and believed he was in the Columbia area.

According to the motion to set bond that was filed on Tuesday, the state requested Hendrick’s bond to be set at $500,000 cash only.
