Local police are searching for a small, white Audi SUV spotted leaving the scene of an attempted catalytic converter theft on Sussex Court in San Ramon Wednesday morning.
Neighbors report that a woman in the car brandished a small pistol at the car’s owner after he interrupted the theft. No shots were fired and no injuries reported.
The incident happened at approximately 7 a.m. Descriptions remain initially sketchy, but agreed that two people – a man and woman, possibly Hispanic – were in the car after the man allegedly tried to take a catalytic converter.
The Audi reportedly has tinted windows. The pistol was described as a small revolver.
New gold rush! New set of rustlers.
Kind of the way it’s shaking out, yes…
More of a platinum rush that is the target of the bad guys…
Except the gold rush had hard working people looking for the gold rather than stealing it all from the people.
Tell that to great grandad, who told the kids he spent most of his time defending his mine against claim jumpers!
