Catalytic converter thefts are becoming a new trend for thieves. Our area has received 12 such reports within the past 12 months, so we are not immune from the activity.
 
CATs are installed on a vehicle’s exhaust system to help regulate emissions. They contain valuable metals, such as platinum, which thieves sell for scrap.
