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.
