Larceny of Catalytic Converters / Arrest of Suspects

On Sunday, March 14, 2010, at approximately 7:00 am an alert female resident saw two male subjects going from car to car in the apartment complex parking lot at 3300 Wicklow Court.

Officers responded to the area and located a 22 year white male from Detroit hiding inside a vehicle. During the investigation, officers found 12 catalytic convertors inside the vehicle.

Officers located eight vehicles in the parking lot from which some of the catalytic converters had been cut. Officers also located the tools that were used to remove the catalytic convertors.

Saginaw County Sheriff Department deputies located the second suspect a short time later at Mackinaw and Tittabawassee. The second subject is a 40 year old black male from Detroit. Both subjects were arrested and lodged in Saginaw County Jail.

Detectives will meet with the prosecutor to seek charges against the suspects. Similar thefts of catalytic converters have occurred in Genesee, Bay and Saginaw Counties.

I commend the alert resident for being observant and immediately contacting Central Dispatch (911) when she saw the suspicious subjects walking through the apartment complex parking lot.

Due to her willingness to report the suspicious behavior, two suspects were arrested for the thefts and will be held accountable for their criminal activity.
