CRIME ALERT: CATALYTIC CONVERTER THEFTS. We received information that several thefts of catalytic converters have occurred. The criminals are easily sliding underneath vehicles and cutting the catalytic converts off in seconds. Catalytic converters are part of the exhaust system on a vehicle, and because of their precious metals (i.e., Platinum, Palladium and Rhodium) are high valued items. Thieves are selling these items for hundreds of dollars. Vans and hybrid vehicles are especially targeted because vans are high off the ground, hybrids because of their makeup.
