Police said they had not determined how many of the vehicles, removed from the lot in the city's West Englewood section Wednesday evening and early Thursday morning, were stolen.
A number of vehicles appeared damaged, the Chicago Tribune reported Thursday.
The lot's owner, who name was not reported, was arrested, the newspaper said.
Police executed a search warrant at 8 p.m. Wednesday after a GPS unit on a stolen car led them to the lot, authorities said.
