Catalytic Converter Theft Moves to Rural South Dakota
Would it be OK with you if I just go ahead and punch the 'this is a ridiculous button, hard!' I just saw on my Facebook feed from the Turner County Sheriff's Office that Catalytic Converters are being stolen in the area. The post-reported vehicles in or near Marion, Parker, Rural Viborg, and other areas through neighboring counties have had people fire up and car and notice the converter missing.
It's one thing when you hear about the theft of such a 'who would want that' piece of equipment off a car here in Sioux Falls, but when you hear of opportunistic thieves, taking to the countryside the whole thing leaves a bit of a taste in your mouth.
Chuck Wood wrote about this story earlier this week as thieves were stealing the converters here in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Officials are encouraging people to put their cars in garages whenever possible and to lock them as well as taking any valuables out of the vehicles.
One fellow posted on their site, that the criminals are fearless and bold, and FAST. Their clean, and professional and it does not matter if the vehicle is parked in a well-lit area.
Garage um up, if you can, and keep your eyes open. Even out in the country around South Dakota.
