9-19-06 - A rising type of theft in the area has the attention of local police and salvage yards. Thieves have been stealing more and more catalytic converters from cars – making about $100 each selling the parts for scrap metal.
But it costs car owners and dealers up to $800 to replace the missing parts of their exhaust.
Durant has been hit the hardest. Police there say they’ve increased patrols. Red River Ford is offering a $500 reward for information leading arrest.
A Denison recycling center discovered they’d done business with crooks recently, who’d ripped catalytic converters out of vehicles at a local dealership. The recycling center has since returned the parts and is helping police find the culprits.
