DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The R.A.N.G.E. Task Force served four search warrants to four different auto-related businesses Wednesday.
The businesses all operate at one location, in the 5500 block of North Dixie Drive in Dayton.
The investigation is a part of a multi-county stolen car ring, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. Stolen cars were found as a part of the investigation, and the raid is expected to be ongoing for “a long time.”
“There’s been a rash of break-ins of cars and stealing a lot of car parts lately … I’m definitely happy to hear that (the raid) is happening. I’m glad to see that the sheriff is taking a strong effort to get rid of whatever’s going on over there,” said Javono Malone, who rents business space nearby.
