THEFT TREND- Catalytic Converters


We have seen an increase in the theft of catalytic converters in our area,  with the first incident happening overnight on September 2, 2020. This is a state-wind trend where criminals are driven by the  precious metals the item contains. We ask the community to please be vigilant and to call in any suspicious activity you may observe. These crimes seem to be happening in storage yards or other areas where larger box truck vehicles can be found. Criminals are bringing the necessary tools to quickly and efficiently remove the catalytic converter completely undetected. In total, we have seen 4 incidents with 9 catalytic converters taken.


For more, please take a moment to hear from Lt. Baras,
