Police charge man with theft of catalytic converters
Salisbury police arrested a Randolph County man last week and charged him with stealing catalytic converters from local car dealerships.
Police are still looking for another man suspected in the thefts.
Grady Richard Johnson, 34, of Randleman, was charged Thursday with stealing 24 catalytic converters and trying to sell them in Lexington.
Police say Johnson took the car parts from Team Chevrolet and Gerry Wood on Jake Alexander Boulevard and MBJ Service on Forbes Avenue.
Johnson faces two felony larceny charges and six misdemeanor charges. He was being held in the Davidson County Jail under a secured bond Monday.
Detectives have found 22 of the stolen catalytic converters, according to Salisbury police.
Police are trying to find Jonathan Michael Guy, whom they also suspect in the thefts. Guy is also wanted by authorities in Lexington on numerous charges, according to Salisbury police.
