HARTFORD, S.D. (AP) - The Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office says they’ve arrested an 18-year-old Hartford man on charges of running a chop shop.

Sgt. Jason Gearman says the man is accused of receiving stolen cars and dismantling them for parts in two storage units south of Interstate 90. Law enforcement officers found two stolen vehicles and parts in one unit and more stolen property in another nearby unit.

The man faces charges of three counts of grand theft receiving of stolen property and two counts of intentional damage to property. He’s scheduled to make his first court appearance on Friday afternoon.

A person posting a photo of a stolen car on Facebook led to the investigation.
