Vehicles damaged and catalytic converters stolen at Severn quarry

Happened on Friday around 6:30 a.m.
OPP

Orillia OPP are investigating the theft of several catalytic converters stolen off vehicles that were also damaged at Nelsons Aggregates Quarry.

On Friday around 6:30 a.m., officers attended the quarry where numerous vehicles, including industrial machinery, were tipped over causing severe damage. Officers also discovered several catalytic converters had been cut off.

A catalytic converter is an exhaust emission control device that transforms hazardous gases and pollutants in your vehicle's exhaust into less-toxic pollutants. Catalytic converters contain precious metals, such as platinum, palladium, and rhodium which makes them attractive to thieves.

Police say anyone with any information about this investigation, or any criminal activity, is asked to contact Orillia OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
