Two suspects accused of stealing catalytic converters are expected to face a judge in Hempstead District Court Sunday for arraignment.
Police say surveillance video shows the theft outside Spectrum Security & Communications Company in Glen Cove.
Spectrum owner Ruben Santana says a gang of thieves used jacks and saws to rip off at least two catalytic converters from his vehicles.
“They came prepared. They had the right tools,” he says.
Santana says the cameras outside his security business alerted him to the theft and his wife called police.
The suspects ran, but Glen Cove Police caught up to them when they crashed their car into another car. Police arrested the two men and they’re searching for two more suspects.
Catalytic converter thefts are a growing problem on Long Island. In Nassau County, nearly 599 of the car parts have been stolen this year.
