They say the suspects parked next to the victim’s vehicle, stole the converter and then drove off.

“They work in unison, one is acting as a lookout. The other one jacking up the vehicle crawling underneath is using some type of tool and is able to cut the catalytic converter and they’re gone with a matter of a minute or two and as you can see, the suspect vehicle that they were using, they actually had covered the license plates, you know, so they know what they’re doing.”
