Police searching for car thieves

Police are searching for the person or persons responsible for stealing several cars.

The cars were stolen at a Knott County used car lot, but ended up in Letcher County at a scrap yard.

Kentucky State Police say several tires and rims were also stolen.

The owner of the car lot has been in jail for a while, but police say family members noticed that one of the vehicles was missing.

"Someone apparently had taken a car from the lot, but actually once they got there and got to looking around, I think they actually figured out that there was more than one car taken from that lot," said Trooper Tony Watts with Kentucky State Police.

The owner of the scrap yard did not want to comment.

Police say there are warrants out for the arrest of the people involved, but so far they have not caught them.
