Three men are in custody in connection with the theft of catalytic converters from vehicles parked at the Sacramento International Airport.

All three suspects were booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail on charges of grand theft, attempted grand theft and conspiracy.

Shortly after 6 a.m. Monday, May 13 a Sheriff’s deputy assigned to the Airport Division was driving through the long-term parking lot. The deputy observed a bag on the ground outside of a vehicle, and went to inspect it further. At this time, she observed three men in another vehicle parked in an adjacent stall. Investigation revealed a number of catalytic converters that the men were in possession of. The three occupants of the vehicle were detained, and further investigation was conducted.

Deputies determined that all three converters had been stolen from other vehicles, and that the men were in the process of trying to take a fourth when the deputy came across them. Deputies also located a number of tools used to remove the converters.

The suspects were identified as Lon Nguyen, 36, Nhan Nguyen, 27, and Eduardo Labitoria, 27.
