Michigan State Police recover stolen catalytic converters during Eaton County traffic stop
CHARLOTTE, Mich. (WILX) - Multiple catalytic converters were recovered Saturday in an Eaton County traffic stop.
According to the Michigan State Police, the vehicle was stopped for speeding and troopers observed the catalytic converters inside the vehicle.
Thieves cut converters from the underside of vehicles because they contain three precious metals, including platinum, which have risen sharply in price in the last decade.
Police said two suspects from Detroit were arrested on suspicion of receiving and concealing stolen property.
