The city’s Automated License Plate Reader (ALPR) reported a hit on Feb. 18 on a 2006 red Toyota Tacoma. The vehicle was suspected of having been used on catalytic converter thefts, according to Piedmont police Capt. Chris Monahan. After the vehicle was stopped, police found no stolen property. The three people in the car were given rides home as none of them had a valid driver’s license. The vehicle was left legally parked.
