Police Reporting Catalytic Converter Theft From Newspaper Van
The Denison Police Department reports that a resident traveling from Denison to Omaha last Friday afternoon noticed that the exhaust on the Denison newspaper van he was driving was unusually loud. An investigation revealed that the catalytic converter on the 2011 Econoline was missing. The emission-control device was taken sometime between February 12th and 19th from a parking lot north of the newspaper's office. The converter is valued at between $360 used in good condition and $1600 new. A local recycling company was notified to be on the lookout for people looking to sell catalytic converters for scrap. Thieves often take the devices from vehicles in just a matter of minutes. They sell them for two or three rare-earth metals used in those devices including polidium, which is worth more per ounce than gold.
