    Man steals cars and sells them for scrap

    Woman finds her husband's stolen car | Aiken Standard

    This guy has some balls.

    When a deputy arrived at Costal Recycling on Edgefield Highway, the law enforcement officer learned the car had been brought in by a tow service and Costal Recycling had the bill of sale.
    "It had been altered," Cpt. Troy Elwell a sheriff's office spokesman said.
    The recycler had no knowledge that the car had been stolen.
    "But, while they were talking with the vehicle's owner here comes the towing company that had brought the stolen car in," Elwell added.
    The second car had also been stolen, deputies said.
    The tow truck company was also in the dark about the crimes.

    We have people that do this type of crap. There is one guy in particular that if has wheels he will take it.

    A major interstate runs though our jurisdiction and we had a rash of disabled cars left on the side of the interstate being stolen. We suspected a tow truck but as of when I retired, I had not heard whether they were caught or not.

    We get it alot also. Anything metal that can be carried off will be at the scrap yard. The yards are in it neck deep also. They know 90% of the stuff the get is stolen.

    Many southern states don't require titles on cars 8-10 years old. Ohio requires a title for any car to be sold. I'm not a fan of cars with out titles. In Ohio scrap dealers are supposed to report the VIN numbers of the cars they buy. Many don't report them or report them selectively.

    South Carolina is big on titles. I seriously doubt the scrap yards look that closely at paperwork though.
