CHICAGO (UPI) — Tow trucks worked overnight in Chicago to remove over 80 cars and trucks from an auto lot after police found stolen vehicles and parts there, authorities said.

Police said they had not determined how many of the vehicles, removed from the lot in the city’s West Englewood section Wednesday evening and early Thursday morning, were stolen.

A number of vehicles appeared damaged, the Chicago Tribune reported Thursday.

The lot’s owner, who name was not reported, was arrested, the newspaper said.

Police executed a search warrant at 8 p.m. Wednesday after a GPS unit on a stolen car led them to the lot, authorities said.
