American Canyon police watched an area that has experienced a series of catalytic converter thefts and arrested some possible thieves.
A patrol unit on Tuesday at 7:40 p.m. checked the area around the 4400 block of Hess Road. The officer saw a vehicle on a hill that he suspected of being involved in the crimes, a police report said.
Police contacted the two persons associated with the vehicle and found cut-off catalytic converters and sawing tools. They arrested Donny Eugene Rice, 39, of Benicia and Eric Richard Batz, 50, of Bethel Island for suspicion of receiving stolen property, possessing burglary tools and conspiracy, according to county booking logs.
Both were booked at the Napa County Department of Corrections and later cited and released with a future court date, police reported.
