Suspect wanted in theft of catalytic converters from vehicles along Orange County road

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public to help identify a suspect wanted for the theft of catalytic converters from vehicles parked along a county road.

The suspect photographed above was seen stealing multiple catalytic converters along East Story Road in Winter Garden on June 19, around 2:20 a.m..

“Our detectives need your help to identify this thief,” reads an OCSO social media post. In recent weeks, the sheriff’s office has shared videos and information encouraging residents to take simple steps to prevent these types of thefts, which they say are on the rise.
