One person has been taken into custody Tuesday evening. Officers say they had a suspect under surveillance as he stole a vehicle, then drove it to the home.

Investigators say they arrived just in time to stop the suspect from tearing apart that stolen car, which led to an even bigger find.

Officers say they believe there are other people involved in running the chop shop. They say it's the type of location where two or three stolen cars are stripped down on an average day.
