Scottsboro Man Arrested In Connection To Rash Of Catalytic Converter Thefts

For the past few months both Marshall and Jackson Counties have had a rash of catalytic converter thefts. The converts are stolen from vehicles because of the precious metals found inside and sold for several hundred dollars each. This leaves the owner with an extremely expensive repair bill and if not soon replaced can damage the vehicle even more.
 
On Saturday, September 4th, Sgt David Entrekin was patrolling north of the river bridge and observed two legs sticking out from under a truck parked at Snug Harbor boat launch. Roger Eugene Rich of Scottsboro was identified and found to be in possession of a battery powered saw jaw and a catalytic converter taken from the truck he was under. It was also determined that Rich was currently out on bond from Jackson County for previous catalytic converter thefts.
 
This is an ongoing investigation with Scottsboro PD, Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office. More charges are expected to come. Rich was charged with, possession of burglar’s tools, unlawful breaking and entering a vehicle, unlawful possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia. He is currently being held in the Marshall County Jail on a $4500.00 bond.
