GLENDORA, Calif.—Two teenagers attempted to steal a catalytic converter at a movie theater in Glendora, triggering a vehicle pursuit and the eventual recovery of 14 stolen catalytic converters as well as a loaded handgun and the tools used to cut the converters from vehicles, authorities said on July 22.
Officers were dispatched at about 11:50 p.m. on July 21 to a parking structure near AMC Glendora 12 at 1337 E. Gladstone St., where they located a suspect vehicle leaving the area, the Glendora Police Department reported.
An attempted traffic stop triggered a chase that eventually stopped in Azusa, in the middle of the road in the 800 block of South Cerritos Avenue, police said.
