Stolen cars and parts found by police in Sheffield 'chop shop'
Stolen cars and parts were found by police in a ‘chop shop’ in Sheffield.
The discovery was made on Tuesday, with police photographs showing a number of dismantled vehicles and racking filled with parts.
Two arrests were made following the discovery of the illegal activity.
South Yorkshire Police said: “More great work by our traffic officers yesterday led us to this vehicle chop shop.
“Numerous stolen vehicle parts recovered and two persons arrested – one of whom thought it would be a good idea to hide in a fridge.”
In March, police officers in Sheffield found more stolen vehicles as well as drugs and cash hidden in a lock-up in Sheffield.
Six vehicles were seized when officers forced their way into an industrial lock-up in the Wicker Arches railway viaduct in Sheffield.
The raid was planned in a crackdown on organised crime, with the vehicles all believed to have been stolen in the north of England.
