ROCKLIN, Calif. – According to the Rocklin Police Department a pair of thieves were arrested with four catalytic converters in their possession.

It happened early in the morning on Wednesday when a Rocklin police officer pulled over a vehicle with two occupants in the area of Stephanie and Wesley Drive for a traffic violation.

While the officer was talking to the driver and passenger, he noticed four catalytic converters and tools for removing converters in the vehicle.

That was when the officer placed 60-year-old Huong Van Nguyen and 30-year-old Ton Saeteurn on charges of receiving stolen property, conspiracy, and possession of burglary tools.

Officers were able to return three of the converters to their original owners, after owners contacted police that morning notifying them of the thefts.

“These arrests represent great police work.  We are pleased to be able assist victims identified on Wednesday and pleased to perhaps thwart more thefts during darkness,” said Police Captain Lon Milka.

Catalytic converters are extremely valuable due to the use of precious metals such as platinum, palladium, rhodium, and gold. On some late model vehicles there is a high clearance and easy access to the converter, making it an easy target for would be thieves.

Three Roseville businesses, in conjunction with the Roseville Police Department, are helping to prevent catalytic converter thefts. If you own a Toyota truck or SUV, or other high-profile truck or SUV frequently targeted by catalytic converter thieves, call one of these participating businesses to have your catalytic converter etched and painted for free.  This will make your catalytic converter less attractive to thieves, harder for them to resell, and easier for law enforcement to find the rightful owner if it is stolen and recovered.

The three participating businesses are Roseville Toyota, 700 Automall Drive, (916)774-4807; Bill McAnally’s Napa Autocare Center, 900 Riverside Avenue, (916)676-0010, and Firestone Complete Auto Care, 8051 Washington Blvd., (916) 783-0431.   Please call them directly to schedule the service, or have it done the next time you time you take your truck or SUV in for a regular service.

SOUTH SACRAMENTO, Calif. – A suspect has been arrested in the drive-by shooting that occurred Wednesday evening in the 100 block of Icarus Ct in South Sacramento.

The driver of the vehicle, 33-year-old Onetta McCoy, was arrested and booked into county jail for attempted murder, accessory after the fact and conspiracy.  Police are still looking for the shooter.

McCoy’s relatives were attending a graduation party at the time and apparently due to a “family feud” McCoy was not invited. McCoy showed up with an unidentified passenger, as she drove past the house, the passenger fired two rounds from the vehicle at the cousins standing in front of a garage, hitting a 21-year-old male in the pinkie and a 31-year-old male in the upper body. Both victims were transported to a local hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Apparently the family feud started days earlier when McCoy went to talk to one of her cousins. According to McCoy’s mother that was when the cousin punched her daughter in the mouth.

As the family started planning the graduation party, it was decided that certain family members were not going to be invited in hopes of stemming the tension between them.
