Yucaipa Deputies Shut Down Suspected 'Chop Shop'

San Bernardino County Sheriff's deputies on a different call say they found several vehicles being disassembled in the back yard of a Yuciapa home.

San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies arrested one man and shut down a suspected chop shop they discovered while responding to a call of a suspicious person wandering around a neighborhood.

Deputies found the shop on Tuesday. They were called about 11 a.m. to the 32000 block of Kentucky Street on a report of a suspicious person walking along the street and looking into homes, according to a sheriff’s news release.

The officials were checking the last place the suspicious person was seen when they say they found a large yard with several vehicles in various states of disassembly.

Deputies checked one vehicle - what appeared to be a late model full-size truck – and learned it had been reported stolen out of Rancho Cucamonga, according to the news release. Additional parts of the truck were discovered inside the residence, officials said.

A trailer found in the yard had been reported stolen out of Loma Linda, according to the release.

The Sheriff’s Specialized Auto Theft Task Force served a search warrant and gathered more evidence along with methamphetamine. As they searched the home, Michael Liranzo arrived at the home in a truck similar to the one being dismantled in the yard, according to officials. A search of his vehicle turned turned up an illegal walrus tusk, officials said.

Liranzo, is suspected of possession of stolen property and could face narcotics related charges. The Walrus tusk prompted deputies to contact US Federal Game agents who have reportedly launched a federal investigation.

Walrus tusks are not illegal to own. I think the sheriff's agency should retrain their officers. They're supposed to professionals but they are worse than the street gangs. They're just a legal gang. The man didn't know what was going on, and was not in possesion of anything. It wasn't his property so why was he arrested for something he didn't have in his own posession. The sheriff dept assumed he was guilty. They arrested him for what? Cuz he showed up first ? The statement above is a down right lie by the agency that was at that location that day. They assumed, they lied, and they abuse the law for there own "gang" activity & enhancements. So you tell me... they all wear the same uniform, they all stick together, all took an oath. Is this not a gang? Infact one the the worst gangs because they are backed by the goverment. If you believe they are, then speak out! Fight against this tyranny. Professionals of this state need to voice their thoughts. The law is to PROTECT, not destroy someones life based on assumptions. The agency was wrong and should admit to that. I think it just made them look stupid. Serve and Protect! Sure, get it right. Please comment with your opinion. The ones who disagree need their head checked for cracks. We all need to remember this is the USA not a 3 world country
