COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) - Two men were arrested early Wednesday for stealing catalytic converters in north Colorado Springs.
Just before 4 a.m. Wednesday, Colorado Springs police went to East Woodmen Road for calls that two people were stealing catalytic converters in the area. The caller said the two drove off in an older Chevy Tahoe SUV with a motorcycle strapped to the back.
A short time later, CSPD said the Colorado State Patrol saw the vehicle driving south on I-25 and taking the Fillmore Street exit. Troopers and CSPD officers conducted a traffic stop and said they could see the catalytic converters in the back seat.
Michael Adelsperger, 56, and Anthony Portnova, 36, were arrested.
The investigation is ongoing.
