On August 16th, 2022, at approximately 10:20 am, the police department was investigating a theft from motor vehicle in the 1100 block of East Simpson Street. A suspect was being spoken to about the theft of two catalytic converters and admitted his involvement. While attempting to determine which vehicle the converter was taken from, another vehicle, at a neighboring business, was found to have its catalytic converter cut. Only the one end of the converter was cut and it was still attached on the opposite end. In looking at this vehicle it was determined this attempted theft had been done at a different time and probably over a week prior. The suspect denied their involvement in this theft from motor vehicle. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the police department.
