Omaha police are seeing an increase in catalytic converter thefts

OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) – Omaha police have seen an increase in catalytic converter thefts in recent weeks.

The thefts are targeted due to an increase in the value of the precious metals in the converters.

“The cost of repairs if a catalytic converter is stolen can be very high. Some repairs cost thousands of dollars,” wrote Omaha Crime Stoppers on Facebook.

Detectives with the car theft unit are working on the cases and also looking in public for clues about suspects who might be involved in the thefts.

If you witness people sneaking around or under cars, ask the authorities to call 911 immediately.
