On Thursday, February 18, at approximately 4:25 AM, officers were dispatched to the 4600 block of La Vista Drive reference unknown suspects possibly breaking into vehicles. Officers arrived on scene and located a vehicle stopped in the middle of the street, with one male driver inside and two other males in the process of getting into the vehicle. They were carrying a floor jack. The subjects were detained and an initial investigation uncovered materials consistent with catalytic convertor theft within their vehicle.
Additionally, a vehicle in the area appeared to have been a victim of an attempted catalytic convertor theft; most likely thwarted by the officers’ arrival. The three males were arrested and later booked into jail on the charges. Their vehicle was also towed.
