Fairmont man indicted for stealing catalytic converters from Hino plant

PARKERSBURG, W.Va.– Arraignment will be scheduled for a Fairmont man indicted this week by the Wood County grand jury in connection with a break-in at the Hino truck plant.

Logan Vessecchia, 23, has been indicted on 37 counts of destruction of property and one count of breaking and entering.

Prosecutors allege Vessecchia stole a large number of catalytic converters that he cut off of Hino Trucks parked at the production plant just off of I-77 at Mineral Wells. The crime happened on Oct. 6, 2022, prosecutors said.

Vessecchia was arrested in Doddridge County after a deputy noticed a trailer he was hauling with catalytic converters stacked on it.

The catalytic converters were worth more than $4,000, Hino officials said.
