Police nab alleged catalytic converter thief


WESTPORT, Conn. (WTNH) — A man is accused of stealing catalytic converters from cars parked in and near the Saugatuck Train Station.

Clifford St. Arnault, 35, of East Haven, is charged with fifth-degree larceny and possession of burglary tools. Police said they spotted a truck in the train station carrying “recently cut” catalytic converters, a reciprocating saw, motorcycle parts and tire rims.

St. Arnault is suspected in several other catalytic converter thefts. The Westport Police Detective Bureau is continuing this investigation in cooperation with surrounding police departments, police said.

His bond was set at $5,000 for an appearance in Norwalk Superior Court.

Catalytic converters contain high-value metals and are expensive to replace.
