MELVINDALE — A catalytic converter was reported stolen March 17 from a white 2007 Ford rental van owned by Oak Park Truck Rental in conjunction with Self Storage Inc., 19180 Allen Road.
The manager on duty said that a customer noticed a loud noise when they prepared to leave with the rental van, at which time a maintenance worker discovered that the catalytic converter had been removed.
She said there were no witnesses to the theft, but surveillance footage, to which she did not have access, might have picked up something, and agreed to forward any relevant footage to the detective bureau.
