Catalytic Converters and Receiving Stolen Property: Who Should Police Be After?
Every few years, if the economy is especially bad or the price of precious metals skyrockets, we see an uptick in thefts of catalytic converters.
For the last 18 months, at least, they have been significant in southeastern Pennsylvania. The storage facility we manage has been hit once. Others in our area have been hit multiple times. A truck manufacturing plant near Morgantown, PA, had a loot full of new vehicles hit a few months ago, doing more than $100,000 in damage.
