CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Prosecutors say two suburban men hired thieves to steal 67 Chrevrolet Corvettes from car dealers as part of a $1.5 million racketeering scheme.

The cars were then stripped at "chop shops" and the parts were sold to Corvette enthusiasts at swap meets over more than four years, according to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's office. Some of the cars were worth more than $100,000, according to the indictment.

Federal agents arrested William Rocco, 51, of Macedonia and Ron Mysyk, 65, of Westlake, early Wednesday morning.
