Man gets caught trying to steal catalytic converter

By Mark Peterson
ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. (WNDU) – How bold can a bad guy be?

Perhaps a St. Joseph County homeowner found out last weekend.

That’s when Jim Hughes confronted a would-be catalytic converter thief in the driveway.

Despite the size of the fence surrounding the property. Despite the posted no trespassing signs, two men moved in in broad daylight about 10:30 last Sunday morning and cut to the chase. One started cutting off the catalytic converter on a Jeep in the driveway.

Jim Hughes grabbed his gun and confronted the men. “I can tell you; I think my heart was about ready to jump out of my chest, my adrenaline was pumping so hard,” Hughes told 16 News Now.

At one point, Jim fired some warning shots into the air. That sent one man fleeing on foot, while another drove away in a blue Ford pickup.

‘Career criminals’: Deputies shot suspects after driver sped directly at them, Polk County Sheriff says

MULBERRY, Fla. — Two suspects have been injured in a shooting involving Polk County Sheriff’s deputies, according to officials.

County officials say it happened near the intersection of SR 60 West and Prairie Industrial Parkway.

Judd said it started around 12:06 a.m. when James Hillburn fled from the Bowling Green Police Department. He said the officers had interrupted the suspects burglarizing a business.

Judd said deputies assisted the police in boxing in the suspects, Hillburn and passenger Justin Norris, as they fled.

“My deputies, were once again, setting up stop sticks, to stop our suspects,” he said.

Judd said a lieutenant and two deputies were trying to stop the vehicle when Hillburn turned around and drove directly at the lieutenant.

Florida K-9s honored with Purple Hearts after being shot in line of duty
K-9s Ax and Endo likely took bullets meant for deputies, Volusia Sheriff Mike Chitwood previously said

Two Florida K-9s were honored Wednesday with Purple Hearts after each suffering gunshot wounds while subduing an armed carjacking suspect in September.

K-9s Endo and Ax with the Volusia Sheriff’s Office received the sheriff’s Purple Heart and the Medal of Honor from Irondog K9, a non-profit organization that supports K-9 teams across the country and helped cover the dogs’ medical bills, the sheriff’s office said.

Ax was shot in the face while tracking the armed man into a wooded area in Deltona on Sept. 11. Endo was shot in the paw and chin almost two hours later when the suspect ran out from a wood line.

T-bones and belly rubs! No Score.

The METHodists just don’t get it. People don’t want their goods stolen. I don’t know about warning shots fired into the air. I am more into conserving my ammo than that, but I damned sure would have confronted them, and when the one with the sawzall swung it at me, I would do a Mogadishu Drill on his dumb ass, to protect myself.

Sheriff Grady Judd gave another stellar performance in presenting the facts at the initial press briefing.
He and his get it done. When asked: “How many bullets did the officers fire?”, He replied: “A lot. They fired a lot. We are still finding and counting bullet casings.”

I love this Sheriff. In another incident where the dirtbag was shot to death by his officers, some progdagandist wanted to know why the officers fired over a hundred rounds at the suspect that was shooting at them. His response: “That is all the ammo they had.”

A video of his best quotes from last year. I’m thinking he gets reelected by a large margin every year.

Dirtbags trying to steal from me is the only catalyst I need to convert said dirtbag to buzzard and worm food. The only shot they’ll have as a warning is the click of the safety or the chambering of a round. Guess I better keep my eyes peeled when I roll thru the Prairie and SR 60 area tomorrow. That’s where I usually make a pit stop before that last part of the run toward… Read more »

This is the simply truth for all dead FGS, from “No Country for Old Men”:

Sheriff Ed Tom: “It sounded like these old boys died of natural causes.”
Deputy Wendell: “How’s that, Sheriff?”
Sheriff Ed Tom: “Natural to the line of work they was in.”

Every time you guys post a K9 story I think back to the PC Peach story. Good boy. Good boy Peach.

I would like to amend my statement from “all dead FGS” to “all of the dead dirtbags we read about on TAH”.

I almost lost my catalytic converter. 10 am weekday in parking lot for several stores near JBLM. Inside under 10 minutes, came out to see my Prius slightly elevated and tilted then heard “he’s coming back!”. I took off running as the guy under the car got up and into the idling SUV now in the space next to mine with the lookout in the passenger seat. I got there in time to slam the… Read more »
