Catalytic Converter Theft

Submitted By Newark PD

Alert: recently there has been a catalytic converter theft in a Newark neighborhood. Here is a list of ways motorists can deter converter thieves, including:

* Parking your vehicle in well-populated, well-lit areas

* Installing conspicuous video surveillance cameras outside homes

* Parking your vehicle in a closed, locked garage

* Watching local news to monitor epidemics of local converter thefts so as to take extra precautions

* Etching the car's VIN on the converter to make it easier to identify a ring of thieves in the future

* Installing an aftermarket security unit meant to deter catalytic converter theft

Also with the sky rocketing price of gas now would be the time to purchase that locking gas cap!!!
