*** Catalytic Converter Thefts have become very common more recently especially for certain types of vehicles. The thefts happen quickly with the actor(s) in and out of the area normally within a few minutes. Most of the time the actor(s) uses a type of saw and quickly cut the expensive converters off the vehicle, then flee the area. These stolen converters are generally then sold for the scrap & rare metals that are found inside. The fact they are not removing them to be reused on another vehicle is why they can quickly cut them off and leave the area in a hurry. We are asking everyone to be extra vigilant for this type of activity. If you see suspicious activity around parked vehicles, do not hesitate to call 911 or 215-672-1000 (Non-Emergency dispatch) to have officer’s respond out and check the area. Please inform the dispatcher if you have any helpful information so that they can alert the responding officers. Some helpful information would be the description of the actor(s)/their vehicle, The actor(s) direction of travel if they have already left the area, the vehicle/location that you suspect the theft occurred from and any other information you may feel is helpful. Please be safe and do not put yourself in harm’s way. The main thing is to get an officer out to check the area as soon as possible if the crime is in progress or suspicious activity has just occurred.
*** ALL SUSPECTS/DEFENDANTS IN THE STATED INCIDENTS ARE PRESUMED INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY IN A COURT OF LAW, SOME INFORMATION/INCIDENTS MAY BE WITHELD DUE TO NATURE OF INCIDENT OR ACTIVE INVESTIGATIONS ***
