RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Richmond Police are asking for help identifying the suspect involved in a catalytic converter theft from a truck earlier this month.
Police said the suspect removed the catalytic converter from the truck while it was parked in a lot on the 1400 block of Gordon Ave. around 6 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 21.
Police said many catalytic converters have been stolen from cars around Richmond in the past few months, which leads to costly repairs.
A catalytic converter replacement can run you anywhere from $300.00 to $2,500.00, according to AutoZone. If you add up the labor costs involved they said you could be looking at a hefty auto-shop bill.

Anyone with information about the identity of this suspect is asked to call First Precinct Detective T. Wilson at (804) 646-0672 or Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000.
