I just found out that someone stole a neighbors Catalytic converter overnight. They use a battery powered sawzall to cut it out. I cant believe someone didnt hear this going on. There is supposed to be platinum and copper inside but really how many of these would you have to steal and take apart to make it worthwhile. This has been going on around here for a while now.

Was this on a new car or did he just have this one replaced? Think about how much we pay for a replacement. That would make it more valuable.

I have no idea. I just got a notice on my Ring app that it happened . Really glad I have a Ring of security around my house because I have to park my truck in the driveway.

Happened to my daughter at her apt. During the night they stole quite a few off the cars parked there. Police called the salvage yards in the area to watch out for these. Nothing ever came about.

Same thing happened to a buddy of mine. I'd say the junk yards should take some responsibility and limit how many they accept unless its from a known good source. Come on, some piece of shit crack head shows up with 20 of these.... should raise a red flag.

I’d like to see someone try this in my neighborhood. It would be the last time it would happen around here. If they were able to make it very far, it would be the canals where the alligators would be so happen to meet them.
 
Skogdog beat me to it , yes only a few can be good money to some. We setup a bait car after my buddies lot got hit . It was fun to watch.
