AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Two men accused of running an illegal chop shop on Richards Road are behind bars, and a third man is wanted, according to the Richmond County Sheriff's Office. 

Investigators arrested Clifford Edwin Palmer and Justin Bossick Thursday on two counts of felony theft by receiving stolen property and two counts of felony owning, operating or conducting a chop shop. 

Kyle Palmer, Clifford Palmer's son, is wanted on arrest warrants for the same charges, according to the sheriff's office. 

The three men were involved in the theft of a 1979 Chevrolet Malibu racing car valued at $70,000 and a 2013 car dolly trailer valued at $2,800, investigators said. The car and trailer were reported stolen from Milla, Ga. through the Jenkins County Sheriff's Office on Aug. 31. 

Investigators said the car was brought to a house on Richards Road where it was stripped down to the frame before being dumped around the corner on the grounds of Hillcrest Cemetery. 

Investigators also found a completely stripped down Kawasaki "Ninja" motorcycle that was missing the motor and VIN plate and a Yamaha motorcycle that was spray-painted purple and had wires bypassing the ignition to start it. 

The investigation is still ongoing, according to the sheriff's office.
