PARMA, OH (WOIO) - Parma Police are investigating a massive chop shop.

Police say they were tipped off when a victim told them he saw his stolen motorcycle on EBay... for sale. The crooks were part of a huge ring stealing motorcycles and ATV's.

That's not all! Cuyahoga County prosecutors tell 19 Action News that the ring went all over northeast Ohio stealing at least 170 thousand bucks worth of expensive rides.

Some they kept while the parts were sold off others. 

"They have guys that steal and guys that disassemble and then they all share in the profits," said J.D. May, Asst. Cuyahoga County Prosecutor.

County prosecutors filed indictments for those involved under racketeering laws meant for organized crime.
