Auburndale, Florida -- Polk County detectives arrested three people Thursday after they discovered their Auburndale business was being used as a chop shop.

The sheriff's office says detectives began their investigation into A-1 Quality Services earlier this week after leads on stolen vehicles and individuals dealing in stolen property led them to the septic tank business.

So far, the sheriff's office says they have recovered numerous stolen car parts, dismantled stolen vehicles, $13,000 in cash and 50 to 70 firearms from the business on Dairy Road. Some of the firearms have been altered for silencers, handguns and long guns. 

The owner of the business, 59-year-old Aleta Burgett, her 29-year-old son Brent, and an associate, 26-year-old Alexander Bove, have all been arrested and charged with Owning and Operating a Chop Shop, Burglary, Grand Theft Auto, Possession of Motor Vehicle with Altered VIN and Conspiracy.

Brent Burgett is a convicted felon and further charges are pending due to him being in possession of a firearm.
