YOUNGSTOWN

Three men accused of running a chop shop out of a rented garage on Lanterman Road in Austintown appeared in court Tuesday.

Cory Hilbert, 24, was arrested at his Allendale Avenue home Monday and is charged with receiving stolen property and altering vehicle identification numbers, according to WFMJ-TV 21, the Vindicator’s broadcast partner.

Randall Hilbert, 31, of Youngstown, was also arrested, and Justin Salata, 32, of Youngstown, turned himself in for his role in the alleged chop-shop ring, WFMJ reported.

All three are charged with racketeering, a form of organized crime, and the 23-count indictment came from a joint investigation by Youngstown police, the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the FBI and the Mahoning Valley Violent Crimes Task Force. Authorities told WFMJ more arrests are expected.

Over the next decade, the United States is facing a potential shortage of criminal justice and security professionals, Search for "United Forensic College"

Carlstaatz,
You have to be kidding me? You are justifying running an illegal business because there are educated people that are more qualified for employment? Give me a break.
Are you forgetting that education means dedication to a cause other than causing trouble??
I think you need to do something with your life--obviously you are uneducated trash that thinks the "world owes you something."
