Catalytic Converter Thefts
(Innisfil, ON) South Simcoe Police Service is warning the public of an emerging trend involving thefts of catalytic converters.
Two Innisfil residents recently reported to police that catalytic converters were stolen from vehicles parked in their driveway. The thefts are part of a trend in the Greater Toronto area involving a number of policing jurisdictions. The devices, which form part of vehicle exhaust systems and help to reduce emissions, are being stolen due to the high-value metals found in them.
