Theft by taking reported at Bell’s Food Market recently.
A woman reported she allowed her son to driver her car to work at the Washington St. business on Jan. 30 and when he drove the car home he noticed the car was not running or sounding right.
She said they drove the car to a local garage and were told the catalytic converter was missing.
Video at Bell’s showed two individuals in a vehicle “working” on the complainant’s car, jacking up the right side of the vehicle to access the catalytic converter. After about three minutes, the two put things back in their car and then they got back in their car and drove out of the parking lot.
