WOODBURY - Police arrested four suspects who they say were involved in a scheme to steal cars and recycle them for parts.

According to investigators, Christopher Morales, of Coram, targeted at least nine cars in Freeport and Roosevelt. Police say Morales had the vehicles recycled at Gershow's Salvage in Freeport for cash.

Officials say Morales had two women claim they owned the cars. Those women were also arrested.

Morales and co-defendant Lecon Roberts were busted yesterday while allegedly trying to steal two cars from a Roosevelt home.
