Police investigating auto-part theft

Police are attempting to identify the suspects who allegedly stole an automobile part from a car parked at a Walmart in Henry County earlier this month.

The April 7 incident reportedly occurred at 2:30 p.m., in the parking lot of the Walmart at 5600 North Henry Blvd., in Stockbridge, according to Henry County Police Capt. Jason Bolton.

"[The] victim parked his 1995 Toyota 4-Runner and went into Walmart," Bolton said. "Suspects in an early 1980s model Chevrolet or GMC pickup backed in next to his vehicle, and removed the catalytic converter."

Police have released surveillance-video footage from the Walmart store, along with photos of the vehicle reportedly used by the suspects.

Anyone with information regarding the identity or whereabouts of the suspects is asked to contact Police Detective Marc McGowan by phone at (770) 288-8494, by fax at (770) 288-8495, or by e-mail at mmcgowan@co.henry.ga.us.
