HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Police are searching for two unidentified suspects wanted in connection to a catalytic converter theft that occurred in the Dumbarton area of Henrico County.
Officers were called to the 4000 block of Crockett Street on Sunday, Nov. 13, for a reported catalytic converter theft. The victim told officers he had noticed his catalytic converter had been removed from his Honda CRV overnight.
Video from a security camera in the area showed an SUV pull up next to the unoccupied Honda at 4:21 a.m. In the footage — released to the public by Henrico County Police Division — a man can be seen exiting the passenger side of the vehicle and pointing a flashlight underneath the vehicle.

The driver of the vehicle is described by police as having a full beard and wearing a flat-brimmed hat, glasses, a sweatshirt, sweatpants and tennis shoes.
