Catalytic Converter Thefts Increase

By Staff Writer June 08, 2021

Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge is warning people to protect their automobiles from catalytic converter thefts.

Thieves are stealing the converters from all types of automobiles for their precious metals. Specifically, hybrid and lower emission vehicles contain higher amounts of precious metals in their converters and certain larger vehicles have multiple catalytic converters making both high value targets.

โ€œThese criminals are stealing catalytic converters that will end up costing thousands of dollars to fix,โ€ said Attorney General Rutledge.

Dealers should try to keep cars secure or inside.
