Detroit Cops Raid Chop Shop Suspected of Corvette Theft at the Woodward Dream Cruise


The news was mixed this week for the owners of a 1966 Corvette and a 1966 Chevelle that were stolen during the recent Woodward Dream Cruise.

Police believe they have arrested six of the people who may be responsible for those thefts, but unfortunately the two stolen classic cars were nowhere to be found during a raid Thursday afternoon at a home on Cheyenne Street in Detroit.

They also think the same people were responsible for the theft of a Camaro that’s been seen on TV in commercials for Papa John’s pizza, the car belonging to the owner of the company.

That Camaro was found abandoned not long after the theft, probably because the heat was on due to the media attention given to the crime.

Fortunately, that car did yield fingerprints that led police to a person suspected of operating another chop shop at his home.

The thefts apparently aren’t just limited to the Dream Cruise.

“This is a bigger problem than the Dream Cruise,” Sgt. Jonathan Parnell said. “We feel this is a bigger problem for Dearborn and thefts within the Ford lot out there in Dearborn.”
