Deputies: Man trying to steal catalytic converter crushed

SHELBY, NC (AP) -

Cleveland County sheriff's deputies say a Rutherford County man has died while trying to steal a catalytic converter from a wrecked car.

Deputies say 28-year-old Daniel Yount died early Sunday morning.

Deputies say Yount and 32-year-old Dawn Bradley had entered a business southeast of Shelby around 5 a.m. on Easter morning. The company has a number of wrecked and disabled cars and customers can pay to remove salvageable parts.

Investigators say Yount had jacked up a vehicle and was trying to remove a catalytic converter when the jack slipped and the vehicle fell on him. He died at the scene.

Bradley has been charged with trespassing and attempted larceny.

It was unclear if she has an attorney.
