SUPPLY, N.C. (WECT) – The Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help to identify two people investigators say are persons of interest in a pair of catalytic converter thefts earlier this week.
The incidents happened at Cedar Grove Park in Supply on Monday.
In a Facebook post on Wednesday, the sheriff’s office shared surveillance images of a red golf cart leaving the scene after catalytic converters were stolen from two vehicles at the park.

Reports of catalytic converter thefts in southeastern North Carolina have surged in recent months.
A catalytic converter is part of a vehicle’s emission control system and helps reduce air pollution. The devices typically contain rare metals such as platinum, palladium, and rhodium which can fetch a good price at scrap metal facilities.
