MONROE, CT — A man heard a drilling sound outside early Tuesday morning, looked out his apartment window and saw two thieves trying to remove parts from a tan Honda Accord parked in front of his Main Street home.
When the two males, wearing masks, realized they were discovered, police said they got into a gray or silver Honda minivan driven by another male and fled the scene, heading south on Main Street (Route 25).
The witness could not get the license plate number, but police notified Trumbull officers to look out for the vehicle.
Monroe’s officers were called to the scene, in the 160 block of Main Street, just after 3 a.m. and noticed that the $400 catalytic converter was stolen from under the Honda Accord. Police said the drilling sound was likely made by a power tool used to remove it.
