San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office

SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY, Calif. – Officers arrested four Central Coast residents for theft of catalytic converters, mail, packages, power tools and burglary tools according to the SLO County Sheriff's Office.

Reports of a suspicious vehicle first sent deputies to the 500 block of Sandydale Dr. in Nipomo on Tuesday morning, but the car left the area by the time they arrived.

Deputies later located the car and pulled it over on Highway 101 near Tefft St., and all three occupants had outstanding arrest warrants according to the sheriff's office.

Officials said deputies found stolen mail and packages, three catalytic converters, power tools and burglary tools in the car.

Deputies arrested the two Santa Maria residents and one Arroyo Grande resident for grand theft, conspiracy to commit a crime and possession of stolen property.

The sheriff's office said further investigation led deputies to a motel in Arroyo Grande where they found additional stolen mail and packages as well as burglary tools.

The room occupant, a Santa Barbara resident, had an outstanding felony arrest warrant, and deputies arrested and booked him into County Jail alongside the first three arrests.
