As regards those thefts, the Departments offered a list of tips to discourage catalytic converter thefts:

  • park in well-lit areas;
  • if possible, park inside a garage;
  • park close to building entrances or busy roadways;
  • add video surveillance to parking areas;
  • install a security device made specifically for catalytic converters;
  • engrave your vehicle’s VIN on the catalytic converter.

  1. This was the same car that was seen parked in my complex with a guy just hanging out. The guy in the car just parked for about an hour or so then take off. I hope that the police nail him. He so deserves it.

  2. Anyone else notice the irony that the arresting cop is wearing Vans and the thief has a Vans T-Shirt on?
