Pensacola business operator Andrew Martin pays to resolve Santa Rosa Transportation buses

Andrew Martin, founder and president of Atlas Financial Strategies, smiles Monday while discussing his decision to pay for six catalytic converters stolen from the nonprofit Santa Rosa Transportation.

A Pensacola enterprise operator has stepped up to support a smaller nonprofit get well after robbers ripped out and stole catalytic converters from buses the corporation uses to transport susceptible residents.

Santa Rosa Transportation — section of Tri-County Group Council Inc. — takes advantage of its buses to transport Santa Rosa County inhabitants who are elderly, disabled or or else unable to shift close to on their own to doctor’s appointments and other important destinations.

Burglars stole catalytic converters from six of the nonprofit’s 12 buses either late March 1 or early March 2 when the vehicles were parked at the organization’s Milton place of work. Authorities feel the intruders required to resell the steel pieces from the catalytic converters.
