There have been several reports about a rash of catalytic converters being stolen off vehicles in the region. The problem has now hit West Conshohocken.
6ABC reported on May 28th on the overnight theft of 16 catalytic converters off eight trucks owned by Aardvark Mobile Tours in West Conshohocken. The company is currently utilizing the trucks to administer COVID-19 tests and vaccinations.
Catalytic converters make a vehicle quieter and are not being stolen to be reused on other vehicles, but for the precious metals found inside the device.
