Thefts of catalytic converters are on the rise, due to the metals inside. These criminals are used to stooping low to get what they want out from under vehicles, but this is low even for them. They must have thought it was like taking candy from a baby.

These crooks took the catalytic converter from a pre-school van on Sayers Street in Lufkin. Bright Beginnings Pre school appears to be the only preschool on Sayers, so I am assuming this happened to them. The Pre-School is located at 1825 Sayers St. in Lufkin.

Bright Beginnings is an amazing daycare, with a beautiful staff and students, and to me for some reason it just hit me as the worst thing someone could do. It's not the amount stolen, it's the principal. Seems like these guys didn't know that they were being filmed the entire time. Crime Stoppers is asking for your help identifying these two male subjects. 


The first Crime Stoppers tip that correctly identifies them could put some cash in your pocket. The theft occurred at 7:30am Saturday, March 27th. This is not the first set of catalytic converters stolen in the area. It is the first time that Crime Stoppers got actual pictures from it happening.
