On 05/10/2022 around 12:25 AM, Opelika Police Officers responded to an alarm call at Gateway Tire and Auto, located at 2023 Pepperell Parkway. Upon arrival, officers contacted 34-year-old Jeffrey Sullivan from Tallassee, AL, trying to leave the business. Officers then located a cut in the fence at the rear of the business and recovered electronic power tools, gloves, bolt cutters, and two damaged catalytic converters, which had been stolen. Sullivan was arrested for Theft of Property, Second Degree, and Possession of Burglary Tools. If you have any information on this case, please contact the Opelika Police Department at (334) 705-5200 or the Secret Witness Hotline at (334) 745-8665.

Catalytic converter thefts have been increasing in the Lee County area because they contain valuable metals and are easily sold. The department has attached information and prevention tips to help protect citizens from becoming victims of these thefts.
