Catalytic Converters Taken at Grain Elevator

(Rolling Prairie, IN) - Catalytic converters were cut from three different trucks parked at a local grain elevator.


According to La Porte County Police, officers were called to Co-Alliance in Rolling Prairie on Monday. However, the thefts occurred sometime after the facility closed Saturday afternoon and reopened on Monday morning.


No other vehicles parked in the same fenced-in area were disturbed.


Limits go into effect statewide on how many catalytic converters recycling businesses can purchase in a single day. The measure approved by the legislature aims to reduce thefts of catalytic converters, which command hundreds of dollars in scrap value because of the precious metals contained in the exhaust cleaning devices.
