West Seattle Blog… | WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Another catalytic-converter theft

Texted to us this weekend:

I just wanted our neighbors and community to know that our 2006 Toyota Highlander catalytic converter was stolen sometime between last Sunday January 9th and Friday January 14th. We don’t use the car very often as my son takes the subway to school and I walk to work. We live just a few blocks from Lafayette Elementary.

I’m not sure what people can do to prevent this from happening to their car. Still, I thought maybe people want and need to know that they’re a little more aware.

There are warnings about this National Insurance Crime Agency Website, along with national statistics showing how catalytic converter theft increased dramatically between 2019 and 2020.
