PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Prosecutors in Philadelphia say they’ve charged 32 people and three corporations for participation in what’s being described as a theft and insurance fraud ring that stole and resold 45 vehicles.

District Attorney Seth Williams announced the charges Wednesday, accusing the defendants of a scheme that used fake inspections, reused vehicle identification number plates and more than 100 fraudulent insurance cards.

Most of the stolen vehicles had belonged to national car-rental chains’ branches in the Philadelphia area.

All but one of the defendants have been arrested.
