TOLEDO, Ohio - Federal agents say they've broken up a tractor-trailer theft ring in Ohio that also targeted trucks in Michigan and Indiana.
The FBI says five men were arrested Thursday in Toledo and that one more person is being sought.
Investigators say the suspects stole the trucks and their cargo, took them apart and then sold much of it as scrap. Some of the stolen cargo included all-terrain-vehicles, copper wire and thousands of pounds of aluminum scrap metal.
The FBI says the thefts began last September and continued through December in Ohio, Michigan and Indiana.
Agents raided several locations in Toledo Thursday morning while making the arrests.
