A tip from an informant has led investigators to three classic cars stolen over a decade ago in Los Angeles.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Lt. Jeff Enfield said the information led investigators to a home in Mojave, where they served a search warrant on Oct. 23. There they found a 1965 Buick Riviera, a 1984 Cadillac Coupe De Ville and a 1987 Buick Grand National that had all been stolen in 2002.

"They were all operable and in good working condition," Enfield said, adding that the Buick Riviera is probably worth $40,000, the Grand National worth about $20,000 and the Coupe De Ville around $8,000 or $10,000.

At the home in Mojave, officers also arrested John Robinson and recovered a stolen Beretta 12-gauge shotgun.

Enfield said investigators will now try and trace the history of the cars to see what information they can gather.
