HBPD Officers arrest suspect for Grand Theft

HUNTINGTON BEACH...Early on Sunday morning, at 2:55 a.m., officers spotted a vehicle breaking the rules of the road, so naturally, they pulled it over. Lo and behold, upon engaging with the driver and passenger, they noticed suspicious tools in the car that seemed awfully similar to those used in catalytic converter thefts. Well, what do you know? A quick search revealed a freshly cut catalytic converter. It seems our friends didn’t know that cruising around with a detached converter, unless you can prove ownership, is a big no-no in HB. To jog their memory, back in 2022, the City enacted Ordinance 4251, stating that only certified Core Recyclers can possess a converter that’s not attached to a vehicle.

Both individuals ended up taking a trip to the HBPD jail and charged with various crimes, including grand theft, conspiracy, possession of burglary tools, felon in possession of ammunition, and, as if that wasn’t enough, possession of methamphetamine and paraphernalia.

Remember, crime doesn’t pay in HB, and our officers are committed to proactive policing and keeping our community safe. Photo:HBPD
