PITTSBURGH A part-owner of an auto recycler has been arrested after 44 allegedly stolen vehicles were found in a police raid on his Chicago facility.
Aaron Adelman, president of Adelmans Trucking & Equipment Corp., which also does business as Adelmans Scrap, was charged with one felony count of possession of a stolen motor vehicle and was released on a $10,000 recognizance bond, according to a Chicago Police Department spokesman. The next hearing is slated for April 23, he added.
Adelman could not be reached for comment.
The police were tipped off to a possible stolen vehicle at the scrapyard when a theft victim spotted his vehicle at the facility and alerted police, who obtained a search warrant and raided the yard April 1.
Adelman also operates a facility in Canton, Ohio, which is not being investigated, according to a Canton police spokeswoman.
