SAVANNAH, GA (December 21, 2015): Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s Central Precinct investigators ask the public’s help in locating Christopher Bryan, 30, in connection to an illegal chop shop near Bull and West 54th streets, recently shut down by police.
Metro investigators obtained felony warrants for owning, operating, or conducting a chop shop, five counts of theft by receiving stolen property (auto), 2nd degree criminal damage to property and probation violation. Brian is also wanted for misdemeanor theft by receiving stolen property.
