CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Daniel C. Ott Sr. may be past retirement age, but that hasn't stopped him from working. Then again, a career car thief, even one whose specialty is Chevrolet Corvettes, doesn't have a pension plan to fall back on.

Ott, 71, of Akron, was indicted in U.S. District Court Tuesday and charged with aiding the operation of chop shops -- garages that receive stolen cars and chop them up into their component parts for sale.

He recently admitted to the FBI that he has stolen more than 100 Corvettes in his career and sold them for $1,200 apiece to chop shops, according to an FBI affidavit filed in U.S. District Court that accompanied Ott's indictment.
