Catalytic Converter Thefts

A car on a hoist has had its catalytic converter cut out.We’re seeing late 90’s to mid 2000’s model vehicles being targeted for catalytic converter theft. Often import vehicles such as the Honda CR-V, Hyundai Tucson or Santa Fe, Kia Sportage, Honda Element and Odyssey, Toyota Prius, and recently the Honda Accord. SUV’s, pick-ups, commercial cube vans like the Ford E350 cube van and Ford F150 are targeted because they sit higher and are easier for thieves to access. Please park in well lit areas or a secure garage. Be aware of any suspicious activity or noises around your vehicle. Don’t hesitate to call 9-1-1 if you see a theft in progress, and document as many suspect descriptors as possible.
