A 32-year-old Richmond man was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of catalytic converter theft and driving a stolen truck, the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office said. 

Deputies at the Windsor Police Department were alerted by a burglary alarm activation about 6:25 p.m. at the Pick-n-Pull wrecking yard at burglary alarm activation and detained a Chevrolet pickup truck leaving the area. 

The truck, which had been reported stolen, had four catalytic converters in the bed, officials said.
