An anonymous tip led to a chop shop near Tulare and Highway 99 in Fresno.
Fresno police found three stolen cars, an engine from another and lots of car parts.
Sgt. Tim Tietjen with the Fresno Police Department said, "we had no idea how extensive the operation was. They set up a tent where they're painting cars and what they're trying to do here is they're gonna do a total strip on the car, take the stolen car, strip it down to nothing and they'll move that car out into the neighborhood and drop it somewhere."
Police are now looking for 29-year-old Tomas Hueso Solis in connection with the chop shop.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Fresno Police Department.
