Catalytic converter thefts are on the rise. The thieves appear to be casing the streets they plan on targeting. Older model Hondas also seem to be more likely to get targeted for their catalytic converters.

The thieves use a sawzall to cut out the converters and the thefts are occurring overnight.

If you notice suspicious vehicles stopped in the street in the middle of the night, or suspicious persons who appear to be casing vehicles during the day, call us with a description, including license plate numbers.

If you hear metal grinding or being cut during the overnight hours there is a good chance that you are hearing a catalytic converter theft. Again, give us a call with a description of any involved vehicles, persons, locations, times, and direction of travel.
