Davis police warn of spike in catalytic converter thefts

Davis police warn of spike in catalytic converter thefts

DAVIS - Police are warning residents to protect themselves from recent rash of catalytic converter thefts in the area. Between Feb. 26 and March 28, police said 20 converter thefts have been reported in the city.

Davis Police Lt. Paul Doroshov said the majority of these thefts took place in West Davis, slightly east of Highway 113. He said thieves are targeting Toyota pickups and Toyota utility vehicles, and are striking during the late night to early morning hours.

Catalytic converters can cost anywhere from $1,200 to $2,000 to replace when you add up labor and parts. Doroshov said people who steal the converters do so to recycle the metal and turn a quick profit. Since June of 2010, at least 34 catalytic converter thefts have been reported to the Davis Police Department. Nearly all of the vehicles have been Toyotas.

Officers urge people to secure their cars in their garage overnight when garage space is available.
