Killeen PD arrest 2 suspected of running a chop shop

TEMPLE, TX (KXXV) -

A man and woman are in the Bell County Jail after being arrested Thursday for theft as police suspect them of running a chop shop.

46-year-old Phillip Charles Franzoni and 34-year-old Brandi Nicole Ceballos were arrested and a case for felony theft will be reviewed by the Cell County District Attorney's Office.

The Temple Police Department's Problem Oriented Policing Services Unit and Bell County Deputies were in the 400 block of Bottoms East Rd. to serve an outstanding felony arrest warrant.

While there, they noticed two trailers that appeared to have been recently painted. Officers found out that they were listed as homemade trailers and did not have vehicle ID numbers. The trailers were transferred to impound so police could investigate them.

While investigating the trailers, they found a vehicle identification on one of the trailers. Police checked the number in the Texas Crime Information Computer and discovered the trailer had been reported stolen from the First Baptist Church of Temple on May 26.

Investigators from the Temple PD, Bell County Sheriff's Office and Texas DPS returned to the address on Bottoms East Rd. on Thursday to execute a search warrant for additional stolen property.

Investigators found more stolen property during the search, including two vehicles that were reported stolen in Killeen.

Franzoni and Ceballos were identified as the residents and were taken into custody.
