Two men were arrested for stealing a catalytic converter in Cameron.

Moore County Sheriff Ronnie Fields said deputies arrested Caleb Purvis, 35, and Spencer Dowd, 31, on Monday after a report of a larceny came into the sheriff’s office.

The alleged crime took place in the 400 block of U.S. Highway 1 Business.

“Once Deputies arrived on scene, they found that a catalytic converter had been cut and removed from a vehicle,” said Fields in a news advisory.

Following a brief investigation, the suspects were arrested.
