Three people were arrested Thursday morning
in Perrysburg after Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and US Marshals raided
Earl Beebe, John Debolt and Anthony Wymer
were booked into the Lucas County Jail after they were indicted on charges
related to a chop shop ring.
Police say the three were involved in a ring
which stole semi tractor trailers from around the country and then chopped them
into pieces on Sterling Street in central Toledo.
Witnesses say agents approached the apartment
with guns drawn while children waited for a school bus nearby.
"The fact that this sort of thing happens
doesn't surprise me at all. The fact that it happened in this neighborhood, I
mean, you just never know," said Richard Andrews. "Economy is bad and people
when they are stressed will do anything to make a buck, so to speak."
