A Fort Saskatchewan woman is facing several charges regarding catalytic converter thefts. 

On Tuesday evening (Aug. 9), Fort Saskatchewan RCMP received a complaint about a woman who cut something off from underneath a vehicle and rode away a bicycle.

Police received a photo of the suspect and were able to locate her a short distance away.

Two catalytic converters were recovered and the female was in possession of a hand saw and bolt cutters despite being bound by a previous release order not to have break-in tools.

A 42-year-old Fort Saskatchewan female has been charged with:

  • Theft from a motor vehicle
  • Possession of break-in tools
  • Mischief under $5,000
  • Failing to comply with release order

The woman is scheduled to appear in Fort Saskatchewan Provincial Court on Aug. 18.
