Reward Offered for Break-In Suspects

BLYTHEWOOD – A local business man is offering a reward for information leading to the conviction of those who have been using his car lot as their own personal catalytic converter vending machine. Mickey Dinkins, owner of Mickey D’s Car Lot at 11019 Wilson Blvd., made the offer after his lot was broken into between late-night Nov. 21 and early Nov. 22. It was, he said, at least the fifth time the fence around his lot had been breached and catalytic converters sawn from underneath cars on the lot. This time bandits made off with the converters from no less than nine vehicles on the lot, with each converter valued between $40 and $100.

Dinkins said he was offering a $300 reward for information leading to the conviction of those responsible.
