A tip by a citizen led the Fresno police auto theft team to a chop shop in central Fresno Monday morning.
Sgt. Tim Tietjen of the Career Criminal Auto Theft Team said officers went to the 1600 block of West Dakota Avenue, where they spotted several men stripping a car.
When officers moved in to check on the home, they found at least one stolen car, several engines as well as other parts. Tietjen said he believed that the parts were being sold on Craigslist.
Two brothers, one of whom lived at the home, were taken into custody.
