LINCOLNTON, N.C. – Lincoln County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a Lincoln County man Monday night (March 21, 2022) in connection with a catalytic converter theft.

Officers went to a residence in the 500 block of Springs East Road looking for Shawn Ely Guiles, 44, who was wanted in connection with the theft of a catalytic converter from a vehicle at City Electric Supply on NC Hwy 27 East in January of 2021. Using evidence gathered at the scene, Guiles was identified as a suspect in the case.

A catalytic converter, valued at $1,348, was cut off a 2012 Ford van. Deputies learned that Guiles would be at the residence on Springs East Road and went to that location to serve the warrants. Guiles saw the officers and attempted to flee the scene but was apprehended when he ran out the back door.

Guiles was transported to the Lincoln County magistrate’s office where he was served warrants for felony larceny of motor vehicle parts, felony possession of stolen goods and resisting arrest. He was placed in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $5,000 secured bond.
