Thieves like dirty air

Vehicles owners in Lebanon and communities across the region have experienced an increase in the theft of catalytic converters. Lebanon Police Chief Brian Arnold tells us that once or twice a week they are taking reports of this type of damage and theft….


Chief Arnold said it takes about 3 minutes for the thief to cut the catalytic converter off a vehicle with a saw…


The thief will take it to a scrap yard and get $50-to-$200-dollars, but it can cost the vehicle owner as much as $1-thousand to replace the stolen catalytic converter. Chief Arnold said they have made a couple of arrests, and have discovered the money obtained from the stolen property is being used to buy drugs.
