Two Sherman men are facing felony theft charges after stealing a catalytic converter from another resident.
On March 26, 2020, at approximately 7:38 a.m., State Police received a report of theft in Sherman. The victim discovered a catalytic converter had been cut off his vehicle. Tr. Tim Saucer responded, and his investigation led him to a residence on North Street in Sherman belonging to 36-year-old Chris McNally.
The residence was secured with the assistance of Maine Game Wardens and Maine Forest Rangers while a warrant could be drafted. As Troopers, Wardens and Rangers secured the perimeter of the property fresh footwear impressions were
found leaving from the rear of the residence. A State Police K-9 team tracked the suspects to a point where they were believed to have been picked up on a nearby roadway. McNally, who was on probation for possession of schedule drugs, eventually turned himself in to State Police back at his residence. He was arrested on a probation hold and charged with felony theft.
42-year-old Larry Morgan, also of Sherman, was arrested at a nearby residence a short time later. Morgan had a warrant from Penobscot County for possession of schedule drugs and was charged with felony theft.
Both McNally and Morgan were transported to the Aroostook County Jail.
