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.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
