Talladega County Sheriff’s Deputies are investigating the theft of three catalytic converters from the old Sycamore Elementary School site.
According to Chief Deputy Josh Tubbs, a county schools employee discovered that the three converters had been stolen overnight between Oct. 5 and Oct. 6. Two of the converters were removed from Chevrolet 2500s belonging to the Talladega County Board of Education, Tubbs said. The third was taken from a Chevrolet Tahoe which belonged to a school system employee.
It appears that thieves had cut a chain link fence to gain entrance to the area where the vehicles were parked.
There were no witnesses or suspects listed in the case as of Tuesday morning.
