Five arrested for role in ring stealing pickups and selling spare parts

Five people faced a prosecutor in Thessaloniki on Tuesday for their alleged part in a racket that was stealing pickup trucks and selling off their spare parts for profit.

The suspects – five men aged between 38 and 66 – were arrested after a police search on their properties turned up spare parts of vehicles reported stolen.

Most of the parts were found in a warehouse belonging to the 66-year-old and on the grounds of a car retailer owned by a 41-year-old suspect.
