Nationally, Catalytic Converter Theft is on the Rise

Catalytic Converter

Thousands of catalytic converters are stolen every day in the U.S. and we’re investigating cases right her in Cottage Grove as well. We’re joining the International Association of Auto Theft Investigators (IAATI) and the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, Inc. (ISRI) as they encourage auto owners to “mark your converters”!

Most catalytic converters do not have serial numbers, which makes it tough for investigators to prove they’re stolen. Thieves can make between $50 and $875 per converter based on the precious metals content. The IAATI and ISRI believe this new movement of marking catalytic converters can have a substantial effect on deterring theft!
