ROWLAND HEIGHTS, Calif. — Deputies pursuing an allegedly stolen motorcycle in California’s San Gabriel Valley followed a locator signal and turned up a suspected chop shop.

Sgt. John Stanley of the sheriff's Walnut/Diamond Bar Station told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune no one was arrested, but deputies are looking for a Rowland Heights man.

At 8:35 p.m. Thursday, deputies had a LoJack hit on a motorcycle that had been stolen Thursday in North Hollywood. It led them to Rowland Heights, where they found four motorcycles, motorcycle engines and parts, Stanley said. Deputies found that two of the motorcycles were stolen. One was the motorcycle taken in North Hollywood.
