Several people allegedly stole the catalytic converters from 17 vehicles parked in a taxi company lot in the 7400 block of Roosevelt Road on Friday, Dec. 17.

Forest Park police were alerted to the thefts by the cab company’s general manager, who relayed that surveillance footage showed up to four people enter the lot early that morning, remove the catalytic converters from 17 vehicles, and move them under a fence and into the alley. The suspects were described as wearing dark clothing and face masks.

No one was arrested.
