SALINA, Kansas (AP) –  Saline County Sheriff Glen Kochanowski says two men are in custody in connection with the theft and destruction of five antique cars.

Kochanowski says Gary Hansen discovered in early April that five of the antique cars he kept in a rural area of the county were missing.

A 53-year-old Herington man and a 47-year-old man from Hope were arrested in the case Wednesday. The sheriff says more arrests are possible.

Kochanowski says it’s likely the cars were sold for scrap. The missing cars include a 1939 Plymouth, a 1949 Studebaker two-door coupe and a 1950 Studebaker four-door.
