CHICAGO – Chicago police are warning residents of the Near North Side of a series of car thefts involving catalytic converter parts.
The converter regulates a car’s exhaust emissions.
According to police, there have been six recent thefts or attempted thefts. Police said the thefts likely involved three suspects.
The suspects reportedly arrived at the scene of a parked vehicle and disconnected the catalytic converter from the victim’s vehicle.
The warning comes six days after a Lakeview resident caught suspects in the act and killed one of the thieves.
