Theft of Catalytic Converters


Broadcast time:
9:20 AM

Date: October 1, 2021

Recently, the Sarnia Police Service has taken a number of reports regarding catalytic converters that have been stolen from vehicles while parked in various apartment building parking lots.

At this time the police have been able to retrieve photos from security video. The person of interest is wearing a dark coloured coat with security printed across the back and what appears to be some sort of red and white lettering located on the left side of the chest. There also appears to be a reflective collar at the end of each sleeve.

The parking lot from where this video was taken does not have a security guard and thus is of concern.

It also appears that this individual may have entered with a dark coloured SUV, as seen in the photo below.

If you have any information regarding the thefts of catalytic converters over the last week or who know the person of interest in the photos below is you are please asked to contact Constable Mark Bennet at 519-344-8861 at either extension 6190 or extension 5205. If you wish to remain anonymous you can call Sarnia Lambton Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Please find photos attached below (we apologize for the quality).
