Routine stop in Fullerton leads to discovery of an auto theft ‘chop shop’ at Norwalk home
By Greg Hardesty
As a commercial and hazardous material enforcement officer at the Fullerton PD, Scott Marple’s job is to look for trucks and large rigs for such violations as worn-out brakes, drivers using non-authorized truck routes and vehicles that exceeded length and weight limits.
On the afternoon of Jan. 18, with less than two hours to go on his shift, Marple was driving around the Orangethorpe Avenue and State College Boulevard area in his marked black-and-white pick-up.
It wasn’t a large commercial vehicle that caught his eye – rather, a mid-’90s red Jeep.
