Three people have been charged after a investigation into thefts of catalytic converters from vehicles.

It was in January that the Windsor Police Property Crimes Unit launched an investigation in an attempt to identify persons and vehicles that may be involved.

Throughout the course of the investigation, a suspect vehicle and multiple suspects were identified.

On Thursday March 4th, 2021, police observed a rental truck driving within the City of Windsor associated to one of the suspects. The truck was observed in the 4000 block of Sandwich Street, where it was later confirmed that a catalytic converter had been taken off a vehicle in that area.

The truck was later observed entering a parking lot in the 1800 block of Huron Church Road. A male exited the truck and was seen going underneath a parked vehicle. At this time, officers placed the suspect under arrest without incident for an attempt theft.

Two females were also located inside the truck and arrested without incident.

Nicole Lacroix, a 35 year old female from Windsor, is charged with:

  • Possession of property obtained by crime – four counts
