On September 8, that agency released images from surveillance video showing the theft of that catalytic converter. The incident occurred on Hill River Road in Hiddenite.

The theft occurred in the early morning hours of Tuesday, September 6. Authorities said at the time that the suspect vehicle appeared to be a dark colored Jeep Grand Cherokee. The suspect was believed to be a white male with a tattoo on his right arm and a large chest tattoo.

Stacy has been released under a secured bond of $15,000. He’s scheduled to appear in District Court in Taylorsville next Monday (September 19).
