WATCH YOUR VEHICLE!!

This weekend the catalytic converters were stolen from our ministry's trucks. Evidently, they contain platinum, and this type theft has become somewhat popular. Truck and vans seem to be the most popular targets. Unfortunately, we were supposed to relocate today to our new building, but must postpone at least another week. I just wanted to warn my peeps about this, as many vehicles in Knoxville, TN have been hit.
Prayers always welcome, needed and appreciated.

Thanks for the warning, Erin. I've forwarded your message to my sons who have diesel shops and work on trucks. Sorry it's inconvenienced you. Some people will steal anything if they get half a chance rather than work for an honest dollar.

Know a lady at work that has it happen twice to her mini van. They slide underneath with a battery powered saw and with two cuts have what they want. I wonder if the thieves waited until she replaced it and came back to get a brand new unit.

This is happening all over - here in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area), these platinum parts are being stolen from Transit parking lots, commuter highway parking lots, etc. they are worth about $2-2,500 each - nice work if you can get it lol ... Go Transit is playing it down, obviously, saying that there have been a handful of these thefts in the last year but, one victim knows of a handful of thefts in one DAY! in one LOT!!

I wonder if our platinum parts are worth anything??

I wish somebody would steal my car. I want a new one.
