EHT man charged with catalytic converter theft from church


Egg Harbor Township man arrested for allegedly breaking one of the commandments – “you shall not fly” – when he tried to pick up a catalytic converter from a church van in Ocean County .

Charles Robinson, 35, has been charged with criminal mischief, attempted theft and possession of burglary tools.

According to the Manchester Township Police Service, their officers responded to the Whiting Bible Church on Lacey Road around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday afternoon to the report of a suspicious vehicle.

While the cops were on their way, a caller reported that he “observed a Caucasian male subject attempting to cut and remove the catalytic converter from the Ford church van.” As the appellant approached the suspect, the suspect entered an F150 ford and fled the area before police arrived.

However, police said a very observant resident of the area, sensing something was wrong, managed to obtain the license plate number of the truck before it left, which was handed over to authorities, who could be traced back to Robinson. .

The Egg Harbor Township Police Department was then contacted and when Robinson returned home he was arrested.

Police said a search of the vehicle “resulted in the recovery of numerous tools and cutting implements allegedly used in the commission of the crime.”

Robinson was released on criminal summons pending a future court date.

The public are reminded that charges are charges and that all people are considered innocent until proven guilty by a court.
