INVESTIGATION INTO THE SERIES OF CATALYTIC CONVERTERS CONTINUES

Berkeley, California (Thursday, August 08, 2019) - Beginning in late July, there has been a series of catalytic converter thefts occurring throughout the City of Berkeley—with over 30 vehicles damaged.  During the investigation, detectives identified a suspect vehicle and placed an alert for other law enforcement agencies to stop and detain the vehicle if found.

On the afternoon of August 7th, the Piedmont Police Department spotted the vehicle in their City and notified the Berkeley Police Department.  After Piedmont PD officers detained the vehicle and its occupants, detectives from the Berkeley PD travelled to Piedmont and took custody of the detained subjects.

After further investigation, detectives arrested two of the suspects on suspicion of grand theft, conspiracy and possession of burglary tools.

Arrested:

  • Briana Nicole Crisp, Female, 37 years old, address unknown
  • Mauricio Romeo Navarrete, Male, 47 years old, Oakland, CA

The investigation into the theft of the catalytic converters remains active.  We believe there may be more suspects involved in these thefts.  If anyone has any information about the investigation, please contact Berkeley PD’s Property Crimes Unit at (510) 981-5737.

Below is a photo of the reciprocating saw we also found in the vehicle, which was likely used in the commission of the thefts.
