Thieves Stealing Catalitic Converters

Southwest News-Herald, Friday, December 22, 2017

There were 4 mentions of stolen catalitic converters in this and surrounding areas in the last few weeks.
If you can, keep your cars off the streets. Put them in the garage and/or driveway if you have them

  • Nadia RN MSN

    We keep our car in the garage. In our zip code people ride bikes looking for unlocked cars to steal items from. Another good reason for garage parking even if it does require the extra effort. It also keeps your car newer looking longer!
