Barrie police catalytic converter thefts

Barrie police say thieves are again stealing catalytic converters from parked vehicles in the community.

On Friday around 7 a.m., an employee of a business on Welham Road discovered that the catalytic converters of two work trucks had been stolen after they emitted a loud sound upon ignition. One of the trucks also had a tonneau cover that was damaged.

Officers released surveillance camera images of suspects and a suspect vehicle.

As well, another business owner in southwest Barrie had five catalytic converters stolen.

Contact police at 705-725-7025 ext. 2702 if you have any information.

"These thefts have left this business owner in a position where he is unable to operate his business as the work-related vehicles require repair and catalytic converter replacement before they can be safely driven again," officers said in a release.

Barrie police advise homeowners and business owners to park their vehicles indoors, in a secure compound, or in an area where video surveillance is in place. They also recommend using aftermarket devices such as a catalytic converter shield kit or applying bright-coloured high-temperature spray paint to the catalytic converter to help prevent theft.
