“On 02/24/2021, at approx. 0354 hours, Officers were dispatched to the 800 block of Range Way regarding subjects that were attempting to steal a catalytic converter from a red Toyota Prius; no suspects were identified at that time, but surveillance video was obtained.
At approx. 0500 hours, officers received another call for service regarding two males with flashlights around a car. Officers searched the area and located a suspect vehicle. They conducted a traffic stop at S. Lincoln Way and Kost Rd. The suspects matched the previously reported suspect description.
The suspects were in possession of an obviously cut/stolen catalytic converter, exhaust cutting tools, impact tools to remove exhaust bolts and a floor jack. Part of the tools were modified to minimize external noise. When interviewed, one suspect admitted participation in the crime.
Both suspects identified as Vue Xiong, 30, from Merced and John Vue 38, listed as a transient, were arrested and booked at the Sacrament County Main Jail on charges of Possession of Stolen Property, Attempted Grand Theft, and Conspiracy.”
