Sittin' here writin' the post and watchin' the news. You lock your car because you're afraid of someone stealing your stereo. You hide your valuables in the trunk or under a cover for the same reason. Well, saw on the news today that there is something people are stealing from your car that you can't lock up. The catalytic converter. The value of the metals in the converter have gone up enough that they are getting between $50 and $100 for old converters. So, these people will pull up next to a parked car and slide under it and cut off the converter. They have it happening on surveillance cameras and it took all of 5 minutes. So, they say that if you see someone working under a car in a parking lot, call the cops. Let them figure out if it really is the owner.
