MORNING HEADLINES: Filling and fleeing.

Chop shop cops chopped -- Washington State Patrol's auto theft unit -- the one that investigated chop shops -- has been disbanded. The cops have been reassigned to traffic safety duty on the highway. (KXLY)

Flood of refugees -- Over 1000 refugees have been fleeing Syrian violence. To respond, Turkey has had to build a second refugee camp. (NYT)
