Bowling Green Police need
your help finding two men they believe are responsible for stealing catalytic
Police say the number of catalytic
converter thefts has been on the rise in Bowling Green, with seven incidents
reported since mid-February.
Police say one victim even
caught suspects in the act.
"One of the suspects
actually attempted an assault on one of the victims," said Bowling Green Police
Major Tony Hetrick.
Police say the thieves are
targeting cars parked in apartment parking lots on the north side of town.
"I was really freaked out
because I thought this could happen at any time now that they know my car is
back, like, it's probably fixed again and there's a lot of cars like mine in
this parking lot," said victim Marissa Sams.
Police say area residents should
be able to spot the thieves.
"They're going underneath the
cars, they're jacking them up, cutting off the catalytic converter and stealing
it, presumably to be scraped," said Major Hetrick. "We really wanna catch these
people. It costs a lot of money to get these things replaced."
Anyone with information is
asked to call Bowling Green Police at 419-352-0077.
