Are catalytic converters so easy to steal from vehicles and the resale value so high that this is really a thing now? This is far from the first time I have seen this type of action noted in the Howard County Police Crime Log.

  1. I actually had my car sitting on 695 overnight to get a tow in the morning. Found out that my harmonic balancer blew. But when I drove off, my car was really loud, only to find out that someone had recently cut out my catalytic converter. Approximately 2.5 grand gone on a matter of two days.
