UPDATE 2 OCTOBER 2013: CBS2Chicago
has more information on the thief and the CPD’s months-long search for him and his partner.
Officers conducting a routine street stop found something fishy in the alley behind 3200 N. Racine around 6:30 this morning: A man with a saw and six catalytic converters.
“Oh my,” a dispatcher deadpanned, “That doesn’t look so good.”
The man was taken into custody for investigation while officers research reports of catalytic converter thefts in the neighborhood.
Well done, officers. Thank you!
Replacement of a stolen catalytic converter can cost $1,800 according to CBS2Chicago.
