The Evansville Police Department is trying to identify two men who they say are suspected of stealing a catalytic converter.

Officers responded to the Walmart Supercenter at 335 S. Red Bank Rd. on Dec. 18 for a theft report.

When they arrived, police spoke with the victim, who's an employee of the Walmart store. She told officers that she arrived at work early in the morning and after finishing her shift, she noticed her catalytic converter was missing.

EPD says the pictures of the two men seen above were captured from the store's security camera, and that the men were seen around the theft victim's vehicle in the late-morning hours.

Although the license plates shown were captured by the security camera, EPD says they don’t match up to the vehicles.

Anyone who recognizes the men or their vehicles is asked to contact the Evansville Police Department’s Detective Office at 812-436-4018 or call the We Tip Line at 1-800-78-CRIME.
