Chop Shop Operator in Court Monday

Catawba County Sheriff's Office
Press Release

A Maiden man charged with operating a 'chop shop' is scheduled for a day in court this Monday (May 23rd).

In early April, investigators with the Catawba County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division received information concerning a location on Providence Mill Road where suspected stolen catalytic convertors were being purchased. This information led to investigators executing a search warrant at the location on April 26th.

Investigators interacted with Todd Allen Lail, who was found to be in possession of 47 catalytic convertors with an estimated scrap metal value of $40,000. The convertors were seized by investigators along with other items and documents detailing transactions involving convertor purchases.

Lail was arrested and charged with a crime titled 'Chop Shop Activity'--a class G felony. Lail was released on a $15,000 unsecured bond pending his first appearance in Catawba County District Court, which is scheduled for Monday (May 23rd).

The investigation is continuing and additional charges are pending.
