SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- Two men are in custody and a sheriff says more arrests are possible in the thefts of five classic cars in rural Saline County.

KSAL-AM reports the owner called authorities April 7 after discovering that someone had stolen the vehicles from a collection he had lined up under a hedgerow.

Sheriff Glen Kochanowski says a 53-year-old Herington man and a 47-year-old Hope man were arrested Wednesday. The arrests followed a joint investigation by the Saline County sheriff's office and Dickinson County detectives.

Kochanowski says investigators believe the cars were cut up and sold for scrap. The vehicles included a 1939 Plymouth sedan, a 1949 Studebaker coupe and a 1950 Studebaker four-door.

The sheriff says the investigation is continuing.
