The bust in the city's East English Village neighborhood came after neighbors alerted police about the home at a Wednesday night meeting.

Police found stolen cars at the home, which apparently was being occupied by squatters. An illegal electrical hookup was powering the home.

The homeowner was reportedly out of state and didn't know about the suspected chop shop.
