The Henderson Police Department on Sunday morning followed up on an alert from Granville County that resulted in the detention of two suspects.
A BOLO (be on the lookout) alert was issued by Granville County about 9:30 a.m. Sunday in reference to a blue and white truck occupied by a white male and a white female, according to HPD social media post. The post continued by stating that the couple had been seen removing converters from disabled vehicles along I-85 in the area.
A police officer who had remembered seeing an abandoned vehicle along the northbound lanes of the interstate between exits 212 and 213 drove back to the location and spotted the suspect vehicle.
The officer “engaged the two suspects and noticed a catalytic converter in the bed of the suspects’ truck, partially covered by a tarp,” the post stated.
The two were transferred to the custody of Granville and the truck was towed.
