INMAN, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Three suspects have been arrested and charged with running a motorcycle chop shop in Inman, according to the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office.

On Feb. 25, deputies received a tip that Mark Hyman, who has active drug warrants, was staying at 506 Cannon Ford Rd.

When deputies went to the house no one answered the door and deputies noticed motorcycles in the yard and a shed in various states of disassembly.

Deputies said Hyman has a history with stolen motorcycles, so they began running the tags on them.

One of the motorcycles came back stolen and deputies said the VIN number had been covered with some sort of resin. Deputies notified the property crimes detectives who responded to the scene to investigate the stolen motorcycles.

Hyman later came out of the house and was placed under arrest on the drug warrants, according to deputies. 

Deputies then went inside the house and arrested 23-year-old Kaci Kirby and 17-year-old Tyler Hyman.

Mark Hyman had outstanding charges of trafficking meth and distributing drugs near a school, according to online jail records.

Mark Hyman, Tyler Hyman and Kaci Kirby are charged with three counts of receiving stolen goods between $2,000 and $10,000 and operating a chop shop.

Deputies said the following motorcycles were recovered from the property:

  • 2005 Suzuki GSX-R7
  • 1998 Suzuki GSX750
  • 2006 Yamaha FZI1000
  • moped (make and model not specified)
