HILLTOP- Big Chop Shop Bust

On Thursday May 31, the Snohomish County Auto Theft Task Force served a search warrant on a house in the 19000 block of Damson Road. This bust recovered stolen vehicles and other property. Four men were taken into custody. According to a Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office press release all four will be charged with first degree theft and possession of stolen property. One will also be charged with possession of a controlled substance.

According to a local Neighborhood Watch Coordinator another bust occurred on a house a block away from the May 31 bust. A Sheriff’s official told the coordinator that authorities were working on the case for 1 ½ years.

This illustrates that local law enforcement agencies are working to put away criminals and that it can take a long time to put together a case to forward to the prosecutor.
