Bamberg man arrested in catalytic converter theft

A 911 call about a suspicious vehicle Feb. 28 led Lexington County deputies to a Saint Andrews Road business where a man is accused of stealing catalytic converters.

Rudolph Edward Myers, 50, is charged with two counts of breaking into a motor vehicle, tampering with a vehicle and possession of meth, according to detention center records.

“A deputy found Myers in a business parking lot in the process of jacking up a car,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “The deputy found a saw and numerous blades in Myers’ truck. The deputy also found a freshly cut catalytic converter in the truck’s toolbox.”

Myers was arrested on the scene and transported to the Lexington County Detention Center. He’s been released after meeting the conditions of his bond.
