Over the past few days, four catalytic converters have been detached from vehicles, according to Capt. John Greland at C-6:
On Tuesday, the owners of a 1998 Toyota and a 2000 Toyota discovered their cars parked at 2 Morrissey Blvd. were missing their converters.
Sometime between Tuesday and Thursday, a catalytic converter was sawed off the bottom of an Astrovan parked at 803 Summer St.
And sometime between 7 and 7:50 p.m. on Wednesday, the catalytic converterwas cut off a Toyota Sequoia parked at 647 Summer St.
Thieves can sell the devices to auto-repair shops - which then charge people who have had their catalytic converters stolen or damaged up to $1,000 to replace them.
