WESTLOCK - Westlock RCMP are on the hunt for two men and one woman who are suspects in a series of “brazen” catalytic converter thefts over a two-day span earlier this week.
Westlock RCMP Detachment acting commander Cpl. Riley Sutherland said that between May 28 and 29, police dealt with three catalytic converter thefts, two of which happened at the Westlock Inn on Monday, May 29, between 11 a.m. and 11:16 a.m., while the third was at R.F. Staples School the prior day.
“So, these are all pretty brazen to be happening in the middle of the day,” she said.
Sutherland said they’re specifically looking for two men and one woman, while the suspect vehicle is a black Ford Fusion sporting a spare tire on the rear passenger side. One of the men was seen wearing a light-coloured (possibly camo) jacket and a black baseball cap, while the other man was wearing a black t-shirt, blue jeans and white sunglasses. The woman, who was the driver, was wearing a light-green tank top, with her hair in a bun and possibly had tattoos on both of her upper arms.
