Henderson Police are searching for a pair of suspects linked to the attempted theft of catalytic converters from a local machine shop.

The owner of Royster Machine Shop says, he spotted two people on surveillance video trying to cut away the catalytic converter of one of the company's vehicles in the early morning hours of Monday, Oct. 12.

According to the police report, the suspects were seen driving a blue Chevy Blazer but left the area before cutting the converter away from the undercarriage of the truck.

Thieves often target catalytic converters to gain access to the valuable metals inside, including Platinum, Palladium, and Rhodium.

The police report also indicates several other Henderson businesses and organizations were targeted including Abundant Life Church, where a van had a converter cutaway in recent weeks.

If you have any tips for investigators, you are being asked to call Henderson Crime Stoppers or the Henderson Police Department.
