Stolen catalytic converter?!?


Recommended Posts

It got so bad here in central Virginia that the recycling centers are required to copy ID and license numbers when purchasing these ''used'' converters. The converters have platinum coated pellets inside and these are what makes the converters valuable. The problem is- a converter that is sawed off the bottom of a car with a sawzall and brings $35.00- $65.00 at a scrap yard could cost up to a couple thousand bucks to replace new. The scumbags will always steal something, but the recycling centers that purchase 10 converters a day from some punk obviously knows these are not legitimate takeoffs.....

Here it is also any type of copper, thieves broke into a large building remodel which went belly up with the economy and stripped it of almost all the copper wiring and pipes. The developer had gone bankrupt and there was no security on the site.

The salvage yards here are not know for their honesty.
