3 charged in $1M Boyle Heights car theft ring
BOYLE HEIGHTS, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- State prosecutors have charged three men with running a million-dollar car theft ring out of a Boyle Heights smog-check shop.
Luis Marroquin, Kirsio Cruz, and Martin Vasquez are all facing multiple felony charges of conspiracy, theft and forgery.
Investigators say it was a fairly sophisticated operation, using phony DMV documents and stolen driver's licenses and social security numbers to clear the liens and titles on two dozen cars, which were then sold.
The attorney general's office says Vasquez and Marroquin remain jailed and Cruz is free on bail.
