CAMPBELL COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — The Campbell County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a 28-year-old man in connection with the ongoing thefts of catalytic converters from a car dealership.

Deputies say Troy Daniel Patton was taken into custody “while in the act of the larceny of catalytic converters” and charged on Wednesday, Nov. 10.

The sheriff’s office says that Patton faces the following charges:

  • One count of carrying a concealed weapon (second offense)
  • One count of possession of a concealed weapon by a convicted felon
  • Two counts of felony property damage over $1,000
  • Two counts of petit larceny

According to investigators, the thefts took place at a Concord-based car dealership.

During the investigation, authorities were able to perform surveillance of the dealership’s property, which led to Patton being brought into custody.

The case still remains under investigation and more charges are pending.
