MORE than 20 stolen cars have passed through a chop shop uncovered in Brierley Hill this month.

Police discovered the chop shop at an industrial estate off Station Drive on February 10 after spotting a Ford Fiesta snatched the previous day outside.

Inside police found the bodyshells of another Fiesta stolen in Coventry on February 3, a BMW taken in Wolverhampton the following day, and a Skoda Octavia stolen in Leicestershire on New Year’s Eve. 

After further investigations, police have discovered that at least 22 stolen cars have been taken there to be dismantled.

They included a Mercedes 180 AMG robbed at knifepoint from a woman in Wolverhampton in November last year.

It is thought to be the biggest chop shop found by West Midlands Police in recent months.

West Midlands Police is urging anyone to report any suspicious behaviour at garages or industrial units that could indicate they’re acting as chop shops.
